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.

I reiterate that as requested by Central and State governments at least 20% reverification (bordering districts) and 10% re-verification (remaining districts) should be allowed by Honble Apex court for a correct and fair NRC.
