Kokrajhar, Sept 13: The All Assam Minority Students’ Union (AAMSU) staged two hours sit-in-protest in front of DC office in Kokrajhar on Thursday following state NRC coordinator Prateek Hajela’s report to SC regarding the cancellation of documents for claim and objections in NRC.
Hajela had earlier submitted a report to an SC bench suggesting that only 10 of the 15 documents originally permitted to prove citizenship be allowed to be filed with claims and objections by the people whose names have been left out of the final BRC draft.
In this regard, hundreds of activists and members from AAMSU staged protest with banner, placards and shouted slogans urging Hajela to withdraw the cancellation of five documents of out of 15 valid documents to be accepted in the NRC process. The students’ union demanded proper implementation of the NRC update across the state taking 1971 as base year.
The students’ union said that proper implementation of NRC update was required with strong initiative to identify illegal infiltration and deportation of identified immigrants through law of land.
The students’ union slammed Prateek Hajela for his initiative and said that he has been trying to mislead the citizens by making unnecessary proposal while implementing the NRC update. AAMSU urged Hajela to withdraw the cancellation of five documents and hold proper implementation of the NRC update in the state.
A memorandum was submitted to Register General of India through Deputy Commissioner, Kokrajhar in this regard.
