Minority Board sets up NRC seva kendras

By our Staff Reporter
GUWAHATI, Jan 3: Assam Minority Development Board (AMDB) is on the job to dispel fears from Indian citizens, including minorities, in the State whose names have not figured in the first part draft NRC that was published on the intervening night between December 31, 2017 and January 1, 2018.
“On our own, we’ve opened five NRC seva kendras – one each at Guwahati, Jorhat, Sivasagr, Dibrugarh and Nagaon – so as to dispel fears from Indian citizens,” said AMDA chairman Muminul Aowal. He added: “NRC authority and the State Government have already taken steps to make people aware of NRC and not to be scary in the event of their names not figuring in the first draft. The name of no genuine Indian will be left out of the final NRC. There are all ways and means to include all Indians in the final NRC even if their names don’t figure in the drafts. Taking that in view we’ve set up five NRC seva kendras and we’re going to set up more such kendras.”
