Steps to check border influx

In a move to fend off illegal immigration to Manipur, special police teams have been deployed in border areas of the state, in the wake of publication of National Register of Citizens (NRC) draft in Assam.

The Manipur government has taken up stringent measures in border areas to shut out entry of illegal immigrants. In Assam, the first NRC draft was released on December 31. The partial NRC draft contains 1.9 crore people out of the 3.29 crore applicants.

The NRC draft publication by Registrar-General of India aims to distinguish genuine Indian citizens living in Assam and those Bangladeshi nationals who came to the state after March 25, 1971.

The process of updating the NRC began in 2013 and it was carried out under the guidance and instruction of the Supreme Court.

Special police teams headed by senior officers have been deployed at Senapati district’s Mao gate bordering Nagaland, Tamei-Haflong of Tamenglong district bordering Assam, Babupara bazar in Jiribam near Assam and all routes leading to Jiribam through Mizoram, including water routes, to avert possible illegal immigration to the state, official sources informed on Thursday.
