    Women From Other States Married To Assam Men Excluded From Final NRC, Claims Mukul Sangma

    Sangma urged the state government to assist the women from Meghalaya married to Assam residents

    The former Meghalaya Chief Minister and Senior Congress leader Mukul Sangma on September 10th, 2019, claimed that the women from other states of the country, who married to residents of Assam, have been excluded from the final National Register of Citizens (NRC).

    “The women married to Assam men from other states of the country have been excluded from the final list. Women originally hail from West Bengal, Nagaland, Bihar and Meghalaya and married to Assam men were excluded from the final list,” Sangma said in the state assembly.

    The leader of the opposition in the Meghalaya Legislative Assembly further urged the state government to assist those women who were originally from Meghalaya but married to residents of Assam and did not find their names in the final NRC list.

    The final NRC list, which was released on August 31st, 2019, left a total of 19,06,657 people and included a total of 3,11,21,004 persons.

    On the other hand, the Meghalaya CM Conrad K Sangma, September 10, 2019, informed the state assembly that a total of 30 check gates and checkpoints have been installed in different districts to prevent possible infiltration of those left out from the final NRC.
