Though several organizations are voicing their opinion on the process of NRC, the Government of Assam is all up to complete the task of updation. In Nazira rural some 50 per cent people are not aware of the NRC updation. The indigenous communities have kept away from collecting NRC data from available sources on the pretext that they are indigenous. They perceive it as a matter of insult to their native origin and ego.
Similar is the condition of the indigenous populations of the district of Sibsagar. The state government mercenaries bereft from making the people aware of the necessity of the NRC updation process.
Concerned citizens have raised questions on AASU’s inactive role as far awareness programmes are concerned. They are of the opinion that NRC being a demand of the student body, it must exercise its moral duty to drive NRC awareness drives.
