    We’re Ready to Prepare a Fresh NRC: Assam BJP President

    The Supreme Court had rejected the Assam government’s plea for conducting a 20 percent sample re-verification of the draft NRC in border districts

    GUWAHATI: Assam BJP is not ready to accept the updated National Register of Citizens (MRC) published last year.

    State BJP president Ranjeet Kumar Dass said that the NRC which was published was erroneous and the state can’t accept it in its present form.

    “This NRC is faulty and full of names of illegal immigrants. How can we accept such NRC? If the Supreme Court orders the state government to prepare a fresh NRC, we are ready to do so,” Dass said.

    He added that the state government would be ready to expense for redoing a fresh NRC. “It’s not about money but about a fair NRC,” he said.

    Dass added that though the intention for updating NRC was good, with many genuine Indians being left out, the current NRC has become a waste paper.

    Earlier, the Supreme Court had rejected the Assam and Centre government’s plea for conducting a 20 percent sample re-verification of the draft NRC in border districts and 10 percent in remaining districts.

    Final NRC has excluded over 1.9 million people.
