Several Assamese organisations and NGOs expressed their disappointment with the final National Register of Citizens list. 3.11 crore people found their names in the list, but 19 lakh were excluded.
The All Assam Students Union on Saturday said that it was unhappy with the exclusion figure in the final NRC, and will appeal against it in the Supreme Court, PTI reported.
“We are not happy at all. It seems there were some deficiencies in the updation process. We believe that it is an incomplete NRC. We will appeal to the Supreme Court to remove all the faults and discrepancies in this NRC.” organisation’s General Secretary Lurinjyoti Gogoi said.
The first organisation to file a petition in the Supreme Court seeking to update the NRC was the Assam Public Works,
“With this NRC, it is not possible to deport the illegal foreigners from Assam in next 30 years time. This is the reason we have demanded the re-verification of the draft NRC. We have appealed five times to the apex court seeking re-verification of the draft NRC, which was not accepted by the apex court,” said Assam Public Works chief Abhijit Sarma.
The Asom Gana Parishad, an ally of the Bharatiya Janata Party in the state, claimed that the number of exclusions seemed to be too small, PTI reported.
