All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) has decided to appeal against the publication of NRC (National Register of Citizens) in Supreme Court. It has been reported that the students’ union is not happy with the exclusion of people.
NRC (National Register of Citizens) for Assam has been published at 10 am today. The final list seems to exclude over 19 lakh people, while a total of 3.11 crore names have been included in the list. The Union has expressed its concerns over the list and called it “incomplete”.
AASU has been an important signatory to the Assam Accord. It was a Memorandum of Settlement (MoS) signed between Government of India and the leaders of the Assam Movement in New Delhi on 15 August 1985. The accord was signed as a health instrument to provide for “detection and deportation” of illegal foreigners from Assam.
AASU General Secretary Lurinjyoti Gogoi, speaking to the media told that there have been some deficiencies in the process.
The NRC list can be accessed through both offline and online mode. NRC Seva Kendras (NSK) will be having the hard copies of the Supplementary List of Inclusions for the public. The list is also available at the offices of the Deputy Commissioner and offices of the Circle Officer during office hours. For online mode, NRC publication list can be accessed at nrcassam.nic.in.
AASU has been very instrumental in the Assam accord. Therefore their views on the exercise hold much significance.
