Guwahati: Recently the final list of National Citizenship Register (NRC) was published. Nearly 19 lakh people of Assam are missing from this list. There is a stir in Assam after the list was published. Meanwhile, Union Home Minister Amit Shah is going to visit Assam. Home Minister Shah will attend a meeting of the North Eastern Council (NEC), a common platform of the northeastern states, in Guwahati, the capital of Assam.
This two-day meeting is scheduled to be held on 8 and 9 September. This is Amit Shah's first visit to Assam after the final list of NRC was released. In this case, it is being considered very important. During this time, Amit Shah will review the progress of the ongoing projects for the development of the Northeast, along with the governors and chief ministers of Assam as well as other northeastern states.
Other development plans for the development of the Northeast will also be discussed in this meeting. According to the Sutras, Amit Shah can hold a separate meeting regarding the security arrangements in the North-Eastern states. Let me tell you that Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Tripura, Nagaland, Manipur, and Mizoram are the old members of the North East Council, known as Seven Sisters. Later Sikkim was also made a member of the council as the eighth member.
