Guwahati: The BJP and even the opposition Congress on Saturday expressed their disappointment over the outcome of the NRC.

Assam finance minister and BJP leader Himanta Biswa Sarma said the Supreme Court should allow re-verification of the NRC published on Saturday.

 

“The names of many Indian citizens who migrated from Bangladesh as refugees prior to 1971 have not been included in the NRC because authorities refused to accept refugee certificates. Many names got included because of manipulation of legacy data as alleged by many,” said Mr Sarma.

Mr Sarma said, “I reiterate that as requested by the Central and state governments at least 20 per cent re-verification (bordering districts) and 10 per cent re-verification (remaining districts) should be allowed by the Supreme Court for a correct and fair NRC.”
