Guwahati: The NRC, designed to identify illegal persons, will be published on August 31. The work is going on under the supervision of the Supreme Court. On Monday, the Home Ministry held a meeting on the NRC, which was chaired by Home Minister Amit Shah. A petition has been filed in the apex court seeking re-examination of 20 per cent NRC data in districts near Bangladesh and 10 per cent of the remaining districts. The petitioner claimed that the names of Indian nationals are being replaced by the NRC by removing their names.
The NRC draft showed many Bangladeshi migrants. On the other hand, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said that the Centre is considering corrective measures including law and correct names to be added and deletion of names. On Monday, Sonowal pointed out all options. That includes the legislative sector. Through which the names of genuine citizens in the NRC can be wrongly removed and the names of foreigners are wrongly misused.
When asked if any legal action should be taken to wrongly add or remove names, CM Sonowal said, "Once the NRC is published on August 31, as a democracy, we have the right to do so." The NRC process can be questioned. If corrective steps are required in future, we will definitely consider it. There is a lot of controversy about the NRC. The Opposition is accusing the Government of playing politics on this issue.
