APCC peeved at only 10 % enlisting of applicants  in NRC draft in  208 NSK


GUWAHATI:  Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) has questioned the efficiency of the 208 NRC Sewa Kendra (NSK) in 13 districts of Assam where names of only 10% applicants have appeared in the first part draft of the NRC published at the midnight of December 31 last and alleged that had the verification of document been done properly only 10% names would not have appeared in the first draft and demanded an enquiry into it.

These 208 NSKs are spread over 13 districts of Darrang, Morigaon, Nagaon, Goalpara, Dhubri, Cachar, Karimganj, Hailakandi, Kokrajhar, Barpeta, Manchachar, part of Nalbari and Bongaigaon. People from religious minority and linguistic minority communities are dominant in those 13 districts.

“Utmost care should have been taken in verifying documents of the applicants in those 13 districts given the demographic pattern.  But is not understood why this was not done and the very slow progress of NRC updating was not traced through the regular monitoring system. We demand an enquiry into the matter,” the APSS stated in a memorandum submitted to the State Cooordinator of the NRC updating process, Protik Hajela on Friday.

“No doubt there is procedure for entering the names in NRC, whose names are left out in the past first draft that has been published with 1.90 crore names. Though verification of the remaining 1.9 crore applications will be taken up in the 2nd phase, even then it is a matter of serious concern that in above 13 districts the names of 90 % applicants left out in 208 NSK,” the APPC memorandum submitted by a party delegation led by the APCC chief Ripun Bora said.

The APCC, therefore, has demanded foolproof verification as per the NRC rules and guidelines of all the remaining 1.39 crore applicants; rectification of innumerable mistakes in spelling of names, addresses in the published first part draft NRC ; publish the complete draft and final copy of the NRC soon.
