Assam govt gives top priority to NRC updation process: Gogoi

Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Sunday refuted as “false and baseless” the students union’s remark that the state government is creating “impediment” towards a ‘correct’ National Register of Citizens (NRC) and said the government gives “top priority” to the updation process.
He also said that the Assam government is putting a lot of effort in updating a correct NRC to solve the long-standing issue of illegal migration.
“We are for a correct NRC devoid of any foreigner’s name. All Assam Students Union’s (AASU) remark that the present government is creating impediment on the way of NRC updation process is entirely false and baseless,” Gogoi said in a statement here on Sunday.
The state government has all along been putting emphasis on preparation and updation of a correct NRC to solve the long standing issue of illegal migration.
Efforts have been made by the state government to ensure that no Indian citizen’s name is left out and no illegal foreigner’s name is included in the NRC, he added.
Gogoi said that though the updating process has been funded by the Centre, the state government has accorded “top priority” to the NRC updation process by putting its men and materials.
“If there is any loophole in the NRC updation process, AASU or any organization should bring it to the notice of the concerned authority,” Gogoi said.
He also urged all people and organisations to extend full cooperation to ensure for a correct NRC in the state. (PTI)
