Assam NRC: Amit Shah asks opposition whether Indians have no rights

Amit Shah recalls Rajiv Gandhi's Assam Accord to hit back at Congress over NRC

"No. As I said, it is a local political issue, " he said when asked for his view about references to Bangladesh vis-à-vis illegal migrants despite enjoying good ties with India.

Work on it accelerated under the state and federal governments of Modi's Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and the exclusions from the list released on Monday have given ammunition to opposition parties to band together against Modi's re-election bid next year. "The Centre should come up with a clear-cut formula on how to deal with people who ultimately fail the citizenship test". "Our documents were the same and in fact, I had to establish my marriage to my husband", she said. The NRC allows those deemed "D" or "doubtful" voters to apply for inclusion but does not include their names unless the Foreigners Tribunals - statutory authorities set up to detect "illegal immigrants" in Assam - declare them as non-foreigners. The local border police declined to discuss individual cases, but said not all documents furnished by suspected illegal immigrants were valid.

"Assam Police want to thank people of the state for making the NRC draft release a peaceful event". The stated aim of the counting exercise is to separate genuine Indian citizens from so-called illegal migrants who might be living in the state.

The draft list incorporated the names of almost 2.89 crore individuals out of the 3.29 crore applicants, leaving out more than 40 lakh applicants from the final draft.

In June 2018, four United Nations human rights experts had sent a letter to Indian govt raising concerns over NRC process being discriminatory.

The Party strongly condemns the move of the governments in the Centre and Assam to drop around 40 lakhs of Indian citizens who have been residing in Assam for generations and have nothing to do with the time stipulated by the Supreme Court.

Huge Blow For Manchester United Ahead Of The New Season
The Sun cites one case of an unnamed player in a panic asking the TV channel he gave an interview to erase an answer he gave them. The Manchester United manager has had a significant number of players unavailable due to post-World Cup breaks and injuries.

Hundreds of thousands of people fled to India from Bangladesh during its New Delhi-backed war of independence from Pakistan in the early 1970s.

The majority of those left out are Bengali speaking Muslims who have migrated to Assam at some juncture.

She said she would speak to the Union Home Minister, Rajnath Singh.

"Not guts but greed for power, driving them to polarise India over NRC".

The citizenship test is the culmination of years of often violent agitations by Assamese demanding the removal of outsiders they accuse of taking jobs and cornering resources in the state of 33 million, known for its tea estates and oil fields. Nevertheless, the fundamental rights and privileges they have been enjoying as Indian citizens so far will remain unchanged till the next NRC update, scheduled for December 31.
