    Assam NRC: Samujjal Bhattacharya Opposes Centre’s Decision To Increase Time Limit For Filing Appeals

    Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on August 23rd, 2019 reviewed the law-and-order situation of the State before and after the final publication of the NRC on August 31st, 2019

    All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) chief advisor Samujjal Kumar Bhattacharya on August 23rd, 2019, opposed the government’s decision to amend the rules to extend the time limit of filing of appeals for the people of Assam excluded from the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in the Foreigners’ Tribunals (FTs) from 60 days to 120 days.

    “The decision of the central and state governments to extend the time limit from 60 days to 120 days to appeal in the FT will definitely give confidence to the illegal foreigners in the state. We vehemently oppose it,” the AASU chief said. “It is unfortunate on the part of the government to announce that those excluded from the final NRC list would not be considered as foreigners,” he added.

    Reiterating the students’ body’s demand for an error-free NRC, Bhattacharya said, “We want an error-free NRC. It is going to be published on August 31st, 2019 after a six-year-long process under the supervision of the Supreme Court.”

    It may be mentioned that the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) stated that the Assam government will provide legal aid to the needy people amongst those excluded from the NRC. The Assam government has agreed to set up an adequate number of tribunals at convenient locations apart from making arrangements to provide legal aid to the needy people amongst those excluded from NRC.

    Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on August 23rd, 2019 reviewed the law-and-order situation of the State before and after the final publication of the NRC on August 31st, 2019. The meeting was attended by the Deputy Commissioners (DCs) and Superintendents of Police (SPs) of all districts of Assam at the Assam Administrative Staff College in Khanapara area of the city.
