The Assam Public Works (APW) will file an affidavit in the Supreme Court on July 1 regarding the re-verification process of National Register of Citizens (NRC) data as per the order of the top court given to the NRC coordinator.
Addressing a press conference here in Guwahati, APW President Abhijeet Sarma said, “The NRC authorities should make it clear that the people of Assam will get a clean NRC by giving advertisements in the newspaper. It is doubtful whether the NRC which would be published on July 31 will be correct or not as the NRC authorities has not yet followed the order of the Supreme Court that it should re-verify the names of 10% of the data.”
Sarma further alleged that the Morigaon Deputy Commissioner has clearly said that many names of foreigners have been included in the NRC. He further alleged that many doubtful names from 22 districts have been included in the NRC for which the top court asked the authorities to re-verify the 10% data of NRC but the authorities have not yet done so and they are now ready to publish the final NRC on July 31.
The APW raised questions as why the NRC authorities have not done the re-verification process of 10% data and that how can they publish the final NRC without re-verification.
The APW will also appeal the Supreme Court to withdraw the votes of the people who have more than two children.
