  • Assam Citizens List Is Draft No Action Against Those Left Out Top Court

Fearing a backlash, federal and state security forces have been deployed in large numbers across Assam "to maintain law and order", in sensitive areas, Deepak Kumar, an inspector general of police, said over phone.

The government said those missing from the list would have a chance to resubmit documents between August 30 and September 28, and had the option to appeal at the foreigners' tribunal.

That this version of the register just published is only the final draft - the final NRC of Assam will be published after another round of claims and objections are filed and processed - will be of small consolation for those who face the prospect of being denied citizenship and either becoming "stateless" or being deported.

The Minister said: "There is no question of any coercive action against anyone". So when the state simultaneously undertakes an exercise to identify illegal immigrants and seeks to provide immunity, i.e. citizenship, to some of them, the spirit of the Supreme Court's order seems to be vitiated.

Accusing the Centre of trying to forcibly evict 40 lakh people, she said, "It is a matter of grave concern". Some misinformation is also being spread.

Syria's southwestern Quneitra province includes the Golan Heights, most of which is annexed and occupied by Israel. Although the group has largely been defeated across Syria and Iraq, it still holds pockets of territory.

"For this remarkable feat, I extend my heartiest congratulations to the 55,000 officials engaged in the process of updating NRC and the people living across the Barak and Brahmaputra valleys, plains and hills of the state", he said. He said he was devastated to see families separated and people kept in "jails" indefinitely, some of them over many years.

"Definitely, they will get justice". In parliament on Monday Singh told MPs that there would be no deportations based on the register and said there was no need to create "unnecessary panic".

Assam is the first Indian state where the NRC is being updated after 1951, with March 24, 1971 as the cut-off date, to include names of "genuine Indian citizens".

Criticising the Centre over the final draft of NRC, Mamata Banerjee said that they can not push the people back into the dark hole.

"I want to clarify that even after the final NRC, every person will get an opportunity to approach the Foreigners Tribunal".

"There were people who have Aadhar cards and passports but still their names are not in the draft list". The first list of the NRC process was released in December 31 past year, in which around 1.9 crore people out of the total applications of 3.29 crore people were included.

"Adequate and ample scope will be given to people for making objections". More than 70 people died and a bunch of pleas reached the Supreme Court thereafter. Mr Singh said, it is asensitive issue which should not be politicised.

"The disposal of claims and objections will take place at the higher administrative level", he added.

Not satisfied withHome Minister's reply, the opposition members including Congress, Left, TMC, RJD and SP staged a walkout from the House. Everyone should lend their support.
