In Assam, more than 40 lakh people are found to be invalid citizens of India.This is as per the final draft of the "National Register of Citizens" was published today in Assam. According to this draft, more than 40 lakh people were found to be invalid citizens of India. In addition that that the register was in a draft state and that people left out of the register would still be able to appeal and present objections. The process of NRC update was taken up in Assam as per a Supreme Court order in 2013 in order to wean out cases of illegal migration from Bangladesh and other adjoining areas.
For the information of the readers, The National Register of Citizens, or NRC, is the list of Indian citizens in Assam & being updated to weed out illegal immigration from Bangladesh & neighboring regions.
Since long this has been into hot debates & now seeing them happening. Yet another bold step from the current government & I appreciate it but quite possible that few would find this on a communal angle & would cry & we will also be witnessing few Human Rights Activists coming in support of the illegal migrants.
