Speaking to the media on Monday, Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh said that the state cabinet has given its nod willingly for the implementation of NRC (National Register of Citizens) in the state.

The Chief Minister told the decision of state cabinet after attending a meeting chaired by Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Guwahati. The meeting also saw the participation of adjoining state’s (Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh) Chief Ministers.

Home Minister Amit Shah was on a 2-day visit to the North-eastern states to oversee the developmental works in the region and to meet the allies of Bhartiya Janta Party in the region. The meeting with BJP-led North-East Democratic Alliance also saw the rising demand for a discussion on Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.

N Biren Singh said that the Centre is strongly committed for throwing out illegal immigrants from the country and North-east region needs such commitment. Therefore he extended his support and re-iterated the Manipur state cabinet’s decision of pursuing the same.

NRC list is currently being implemented in Assam region to weed out the illegal immigrants from Bangladesh. Only the genuine Indian citizens with valid credentials of citizenship are being allowed to stay on the list. The latest publication of NRC list on 31 August excluded 19 lakh people out of its purview.
