Addressing a public meeting at Chakradharpur today, BJP President Amit Shah said, Congress was against the formation of separate Jharkhand state and JMM has joined hands with the party which had opposed the formation of the state. The BJP President said, the Government will implement NRC in the whole country before 2024. He said, the Government has eradicated Naxalism in the state.
