NRC Final Draft: Himanta Biswa Sarma says reverification required; AASU disappointed
1:00 PM: AASU Reacts
We are not happy with the numbers. We wanted better results in NRC.
The number of people excluded is less than expected. We respect the apex court, under whom the whole process was carried and will approach it again after taking all legal advices.
12:30 PM: Himanta Biswa Sarma gives his reaction on NRC
Names of many Indian citizens who migrated from Bangladesh as refugees prior to 1971 have not been included in the NRC because authorities refused to accept refugee certificates. Many names got included because of manipulation of legacy data as alleged by many.
Hard copies of the supplementary list of inclusions will be available for public view at NRC seva kendras, office of the Deputy Commissioners and office of the circle officer during office hours. The status of both inclusions and exclusions can be viewed online on the NRC website.
Total No of Applicants : 3,30,27,661
A total of 3,11,21,004 persons found eligible for inclusion in final NRC leaving out 19,06,657 persons including those who did not submit their claims.
NSKs got the list: people can go to any NSK and check if their name is there. From 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM NRC Seva Kendras will serve people.

Just hoping home minister Shah who describes human beings as “termites” does not think the #NRC is a master stroke

Yes fitness is important. Economy even more so. Let’s spare a thought for those waiting on the #NRC final list. The exercise will end up creating more problems especially for those it will force into stateless existence or detention. Remember BJP’s promise to take NRC nationwide!
