CM draws flak for new NRC move

Dispur’s new move on NRC runs into a hail of protest across the state a day after chief minister advocated the inclusion of names of electorates.

Various parties and organizations alleged that it is yet another attempt to include the names of the Bangladeshi immigrants in the updated NRC.

The All Assam Students’ Union (AASU), Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad (AJYCP), Assam Public Works (APW), Krishak Mukti Sangram Samity (KMSS) have threaten to launch massive strike if the government proceeds further.

Chairing a meeting in Dispur on Tuesday, the Chief Minister decided to request to the Centre to include the names of the citizens who are electorate by virtue of birth.
