Assam Gives Top Priority to NRC Updation Process

Guwahati, Assam [Nov 2015]


Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Sunday termed (All Assam Students Union) AASU's remark as "false" and "baseless" that present government is stonewalling the National Register of Citizen (NRC) update process.
"It is due to my initiative the NRC updation process has begun in right earnest. We are for a correct NRC devoid of any foreigner's name," he said in a statement. Gogoi said that the State Government has all along been putting emphasis on preparation of a correct NRC to resolve the long-standing issue of illegal immigration.
He also said that efforts have been made by the State Government so that no genuine Indian citizen's name is left out and no illegal foreigner's name is included in the NRC.
Gogoi said the Assam State Government has accorded top priority to the exercise by putting its men and materials. Because of the timely intervention of the State Government, the process of updating the NRC is being done expeditiously, he claimed. Chief Minister Gogoi also said that if there is any loopholes in the NRC updation process, AASU or any organization should bring it to the notice of the concerned authority.
