Another speaker George Becker, however, heaped huge praise on the people of Assam saying they are decent lot where they won't do anything which is detrimental to the cause of the nation.
Many patties and organizations in Assam have vehemently criticized the organization and the speakers of the convention for opposing the process to update NRC saying that if these people are not immigrant why should they be so scared of.
