Poha test for illegal immigrants
A preference for poha (chire or flattened rice) may indicate one is an illegal Bangladeshi immigrant, BJP general secretary and Bengal minder Kailash Vijayvargiya has suggested.
Speaking at a seminar in support of the CAA Act on Thursday in his hometown Indore, Vijayvargiya said he saw half-a-dozen construction labourers at his home, eating poha from the same plate.
He said he was told the workers only ate poha and not roti. "I got suspicious: from which country are they that they only eat platefuls of poha?"
He said the contractor told him the labourers were outsiders who worked at low wages.
