India s home affairs minister on Sunday said his government "will not allow a single illegal immigrant to stay", as he visited Assam state where a controversial citizenship register sparked uproar from the nearly two million people excluded.

After Article 370 was read down in Jammu and Kashmir, there were attempts to "misinform and misguide" the people of the Northeast that Article 371 would be scrapped by the Centre, Shah said in his inaugural address at the 68th plenary session of the North East Council (NEC). (Articles) 370 and 371 has no relation.

Amit Shah in NEDA meet on NRC: The Home Minister held a meeting with BJP's northeast allies. He also assured that Article 371 (A) to (J), which gives special provisions to northeastern states, will not be tweaked.

However, the National Register of Citizens (NRC) was completed within its time frame. Shah, prime minister Narendra Modi's right-hand man, has previously said India must act against "infiltrators who were eating the country like termites". It is to be noted that Article 370 granted special status to the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir but the Centre not only revoked Article 370, it also bifurcated Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories - Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.

Noting the diverse culture of northeast, Shah said there were around 270 ethnic groups and around 150 dialects in the region. "We will ensure it does not infringe our tribal laws", he said today, referring to the government's plan to bring a bill that will grant Indian citizenship to members of six minority communities from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan even if they do not have valid documents.

"We have major plans for the region in 2022 when NEC turns 50 years". We want all the eight States in the region to be on the air and railway map of India.

"The eight N-E states are like Astalakhmi and they will play a vital role in the country's development", he said and added, the NEC would earmark 30 per cent of funds for the deprived sections.

Dubbing northeast as "mini India", Shah said the region had great potential as it accounted for around 9 per cent of the country's area and 3.78 per cent of population.

Mr. Shah is scheduled to attend the fourth convocation of the North East Democratic Alliance, a forum of anti-Congress parties, helmed by the Bharatiya Janata Party, in Guwahati on Monday.
