Modi government hatched conspiracy to stall NRC: Congress

New Delhi, Aug 5 : Congress on Sunday exposed on how the Narendra Modi Government had attempted to stall Assam NRC process by appealing to the Supreme Court that such a move could lead to law and order issues.

“The Shah of lies and the Shahenshah of Jumlas tried their best to stall NRC. I will tell you how they hatched a conspiracy to stop, delay and disrupt the NRC process,” said Khera.

“We demand that the Modi government apologise to the people of Assam for attempting to stall NRC in the Supreme Court of India.

Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera said the Attorney General of India had used the fear of violence to delay the implementation of NRC in the Supreme Court in 2017, for which he was reprimanded by the top court.

 

This statement from the Congress came a day after the party staked ownership of Assam’s National Register of Citizens (NRC) exercise by calling it “a baby of the Congress party,” born as a consequence of the Assam Accord signed by former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi in 1985.

Hon’ble Supreme Court in its order dated 30 November 2017 said “It is the sheer inaction on the part of the executive in dragging the matter for a period of over three years and the absence of any justifiable cause to hold back even a partial publication that has led the court to direct publication of the draft NRC on or before 31st December 2017”

Accusing BJP president Amit Shah of speaking lies in Parliament about the government’s show of courage to implement NRC, Khera said the date, November 30, 2017, when the SC came down heavily on the Union government will be remembered in history.

Khera said the SC had lashed out at the AG and criticised the government’s “sheer inaction” and dragging the matter for more than three years on the excuse of impending violence and law and order situation.

The court, Khera said, had additionally criticised the government over the AG’s statement that part publication of the draft NRC could result in a law and order situation as a large segment of people would understand that their name have been excluded from the draft NRC.

“Learned Attorney General has further submitted that part publication of the draft NRC could result in a law and order situation inasmuch as a large segment of the people would understand that their name have been excluded from the draft NRC. We do not see how the aforesaid situation can even remotely arise as we have already indicated in the earlier part of the present order that claims of 47 lakh persons and 29 lakh persons are still pending and would be subject to verification and covered by publication of another draft NRC at a subsequent point of time”.

He said it was shocking that the Union government’s highest legal officer made this submission in the apex court.

 

“We also demand to know what is the stand of this government, which on the one hand seeks to give citizenship rights through the proposed Citizenship Amendment Bill (2016) to all those who migrated to India before 31 December, 2014 and on the other hand is playing politics with NRC,” Khera said, demanding the resignation of Chief Minister Sarbanand Sonowal who, he said, had no right to be the CM of a state that his party “so shamelessly cheated” in the Supreme Court on the issue of NRC.

Priyanka Gandhi

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi took on Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath for the death of Hathras rape victim, saying he doesn’t have any moral right to continue as chief minister.

“I was on the phone with the Hathras victim’s father when he was informed that his daughter had passed away. I heard him cry out in despair. He had just been telling me that all he wanted was justice for his child. Last night he was robbed of the chance to take his daughter home for the last time and perform her last rites,” Gandhi said in her first two tweets on the issue on Wednesday.

She also asked Adityanath to resign. “@myogiadityanath RESIGN. Instead of protecting the victim and her family, your government became complicit in depriving her of every single human right, even in death. You have no moral right to continue as Chief Minister,” Gandhi tweeted.

The 19-year-old died in a Delhi hospital on Tuesday. The woman was admitted there in a critical condition after being brutally raped by four men in her village in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras district.

The incident took place on September 14. She was first admitted to JN Medical College and Hospital in Aligarh, but was shifted to Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital after her condition deteriorated where she breathed her last.

The UP government has been facing flak from Opposition parties over the issue. Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav had said that “no hope” is left from the “insensitive government”.

Reacting to the incident, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president Mayawati tweeted in Hindi, “The news of the death of the Dalit girl after gangrape in Hathras, UP, is very sad. The government should provide all possible help to the victim’s family and ensure quick punishment to the culprits by prosecuting them in a fast-track court.”

The Congress has questioned the “silence” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and women leaders of his party and alleged that Uttar Pradesh under the Yogi Adityanath government has become the country’s “crime capital”.

At a press conference, Congress spokesperson Supriya Shrinate alleged that for eight days no gangrape charges were pressed in the matter and that the UP chief minister’s information advisor and Agra Police kept calling the incident “fake news”.
