The All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) said that they are 50 percent satisfied and 50 percent dissatisfied over NRC.
Addressing a press conference, General Secretary of AIUDF Aminul Islam said that the government has played politics over the foreigners issue and many even taken the benefit. He said that from Hiteswar Saikia to Prafulla Kumar Mahanta, all have talked about the foreigners issue but none has solved it.
Islam stated that many organizations including political parties were hopeful that the foreigners’ problem will be solved through NRC but now the BJP and its sister organization opposing the NRC is shocking.
The AIUDF GS further claimed that the BJP has taken benefit by saying that there are 40 lakhs foreigners during the time of election and Himanta Biswa Sarma has played Hindu-Muslim politics. He said that it is not worth to play politics with NRC and that if the genuine Indians have been left out of NRC then there are ways to solve the problem as they will be able to claim objections. He asked the people whose name has been excluded from the NRC not to panic.
Islam said that it is after 40 years that a figure has been published and therefore, they are happy adding that Assam Public Works or any other organizations should not take the credit and said that the NRC is the result of the decision of the Supreme Court.
