TMC MP Sougata Roy has given a notice for adjournment motion in the Lok Sabha over the final draft of the National Register of Citizens.
"If the government has made a decision to brand us foreigners what can we do?" said the 60-year-old. In February 1983, 2,000 immigrant Muslims were slaughtered in one night by machete-armed mobs in a brutal massacre in Nellie. Out of a total of 3.29 crore people, 2,89,83,677 (two crore eighty nine lakh, eighty three thousand six hundred and seventy seven) people have been found eligible to be included in the National Register of Citizens.
The legally-binding list is being updated for the first time since 1951 to recognize Indian citizens living in Assam and identify those not legally living in the state.
If a person's name does not appear in the draft, he/she will have to apply in prescribed forms in their respective NRC Sew Kendras. We are anxious because people are being made refugees in their own country.
To be recognized as citizens, all residents of Assam had to produce documents proving that they or their families lived in India before March 24, 1971.
The arrival of millions of refugees to Assam in 1971 - when Bangladesh seceded from Pakistan after a bloody civil war - brought the issue of these so-called foreigners into national focus. Those who can't prove that they came to Assam before March 25 1971 will be deemed illegal migrants.
In many cases, earlier documented by Al Jazeera, people have faced harassment and discrimination, with several individuals falsely marked "D" voters or declared foreigners. They settled in Assam, which borders the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan to the north and Bangladesh to the south and is home to several rebel groups. Almost all were Muslim, and many were children. People will be given time to file for corrections, Indian officials said. But the NRC told India's top court this month that it would drop 150,000 people from that list - a third of them married women - mainly because they had provided false information or inadmissible documents. Until then, no one will be declared an illegal migrant.
The following remark by the Bengal CM comes after Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh had claimed that the following NRC data is just a draft and the final list will be released in December.
