In protest against the exclusion of names of genuine Hindu Bengali nationals into the final draft of NRC published on August 31 last, the Nikhil Bharat Bengali Udbastu Samannay Samiti (NBBUSS)-led by its controversial leader Subodh Biswas (Prime accused in Silapathar case) on Monday staged a demonstration at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi.
“Lakhs of Bengali people’s names were not included in the NRC. We demand that their names should be included in the NRC unconditionally”, Biswas said.
He also urged centre to pass the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 as quickly as possible.
“If centre could revoke Article 370 from J&K, then it can also grant citizenship to the Hindu Bengalis as Assam is also a state of India. There should be single law for one nation”, he added.
In 2017, the lesser-known Nikhil Bharat Udbastu Samannay Samiti (NBBUSS) had damaged the martyrs’ memorial of AASU and had vandalised their office at Silapathar in Dhemaji district of Assam.
Police had arrested NBBUSS leader Subodh Biswas and several other members and they were released on bail after remaining behind bars for two years.
