Himanta not happy with Assam NRC proceedings in the state

Majuli, October 11: State Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma today expressed his discontentment over the proceedings of Assam National Register of Citizens(NRC).

He was addressing the media during a state executive meeting of the Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) in Majuli.

He said, “The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 should not be an issue, rather the people should worry about the illegal foreigners who have been incorporated in the complete draft of NRC and how the illegal foreigners can be removed from the draft in districts like Dhubri, Cachar and Hilakandi.”

Further adding, “All are speaking about the Citizenship Bill but no one is concerned about the involvement of names of illegal foreigners in the final draft of NRC”.
