The All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) has filed a petition at the Supreme Court seeking a thorough modification of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) to pass over the errors. The final list of the NRC which was published on August 31 has excluded around 19 lakh people.
AASU claimed that a number of genuine Indians especially the indigenous people have been left out from the list.
“We also want a special provision to include indigenous people in the final list,” said AASU.
The students’ body has also slammed the Centre and state for failing to implement the guidelines of the Supreme Court and prepare an error-free NRC list.
