Those not in draft NRC are intruders, opposition should clear stand: Shah

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

However, the Congress member, along with some members of other opposition parties, insisted on the BJP member's apology.

The process for updating the NRC, the basic legal document for proof of Assamese identity, began in 2009 when the reclusive Pradip Kumar Bhuyan prepared the draft of the writ petition and persuaded Sarma, president of Assam Public Works (APW), a voluntary organisation, to be its petitioner in the apex court.

Several other survivors of the "Nellie Massacre", which killed around 2,000 people from more than a dozen villages, gave accounts of burying bodies in a mass grave now partly under water.

"Firstly, we see this as an internal, local political issue with Indian state of Assam". On 30th July, 2018 the final draft of the NRC was released.

When inquired about his view on references to Bangladesh vis-à-vis illegal migrants despite enjoying good ties with India, he said, "No".

Earlier, BJP President Amit Shah at a press conference after the ruckus in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday said that no Indian citizen would be excluded from the NRC list, ANI reported.

Assam is the only Indian state to conduct a citizenship verification exercise on such a massive scale.

He said that citizen security was their priority and NRC was for the security of the nation.

Many Bengalis - a linguistic minority in Assam - are anxious they will be deported en masse.

"People talk about human rights".

He said Bangladesh had 10 million refugees in India during the liberation war with Pakistan. A large number of applicants who deposited ration cards as supporting documents were reportedly rejected.

India does not have a deportation pact with Bangladesh, however, and the government has said it would decide on the fate of those eventually deemed foreigners in consultation with the Supreme Court, which is monitoring the registration process.

Chances are India will end up creating the newest cohort of stateless people, raising the spectre of a homegrown crisis that will echo the Rohingya people who fled Myanmar for Bangladesh. They also did not allow Amit Shah to speak.

Meanwhile, she also hit out at Chief Minister Sarbanada Sonowal-led government, saying people who recently voted for the incumbent government in the state and at the Centre, have been declared as refugees in their own country.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) federal government and the BJP government in Assam are issuing last moment assurances to calm them down but frightened minorities are bracing for the worst because of the BJP's record of targeting them and Assam's history of anti-Muslim pogroms.
