NRC excess on minority!


NEW DELHI: The speakers at a national convention in New Delhi on Tuesday strongly opposed the ongoing process to update NRC alleging it an attempt to drive out from the state nearly 50 lakh linguistic minority people.

Organized by Human Protection and Organization at the Press Club of India in the afternoon, PRASENJIT Biswas said the linguistic minority people are being harressed in the north eastern state in the name of NRC.

He further said by the next couple of months in Assam around 50 lakh linguistic minority people would be tendered homeless in the name of an updated NRC.
 
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.

The organization held the anti NRC convention hours after the Supreme Court remained firm on June 30 as the date to publish the complete NRC draft.
