NRC: Gogoi shoots arrow at BJP


Former Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Saturday asked the BJP why NRC coordinator Prateek Hajela was not removed from his duties if he is really enlisting Bangladeshi-origin people in the NRC.

Addressing the media in Guwahati, Gogoi said, “Hajela is just a government employee and if BJP thinks that he has done something incorrect, then why is he not being removed or transferred?” He further said that BJP does not want a proper NRC. “This is all a gimmick meant to mislead the public,” Gogoi added.

It may be mentioned here that Assam BJP earlier slammed Hajela over the NRC and said that he wanted to get rid of his duties by simply completing the NRC process.
