Following the Minister’s tweet, the Center declares that there would be no apartments for Rohingya in Delhi


Hardeep Singh Puri, a Union Minister, pledged housing and security for Rohingya refugees from Myanmar in a tweet a few hours later. However, his own administration afterwards appeared to contradict the remark, claiming that no such benefits have been announced for “Rohingya illegal aliens.”

“You’ll be let down if you’ve made a living propagating lies about India’s refugee policy by intentionally connecting it to the #CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act). India respects and upholds the 1951 UN Refugee Convention and offers asylum to everybody, irrespective of their race, religion, or creed” He added in a subsequent tweet.

The UN agreement that outlines refugee rights and states’ responsibilities to safeguard them is not ratified by India. Hardeep Puri, a former diplomat, is the minister of petroleum and natural gas as well as housing and urban affairs. Three tweets from the Union Home Ministry, headed by Amit Shah, who has previously referred to illegal immigrants as “termites,” came after his own.

In order to increase their support from the Hindu majority, officials of the ruling BJP have regularly criticised the Rohingya Muslims’ settlement as a divisive issue in India. Leaders of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which is in power in Delhi, have also spoken out against them.
