Assam NRC will disrupt the entire North East: Congress

Manish Tewari

New Delhi, July 31: The Congress on Tuesday said the Assam’s National Register of Citizens  will subvert the state  and disrupt the entire North East. 

 Senior Congress leader Manish Tewari said “On what empirical evidence, has BJP President Amit Shah declared 40 lakh people as Bangladeshi infiltrators?

 “Does PM Modi promise to send these people to Bangladesh? An absurd situation has been created. It will subvert Assam & disrupt entire North East, ” the Congress leader said.

Congress-led Opposition parties have been raising concern over  the exclusion of  40 lakh people from the second and final draft of Assam’s National Register of Citizens (NRC).

BSP chief Mayawati said, “Citizenships of 40 lakhs minorities have been almost seized in NRC draft in BJP-ruled Assam. If people living for a long time in Assam haven’t been able to provide proof about their citizenship, it doesn’t mean they should be thrown out of the country.”
