KALAIGAON, June 29: A community-level meeting was held at Khoirabari Development Block regarding NRC by Khoirabari CRCR, which was attended by the Deputy Commissioner of Udalguri district, Dilip Kumar Das, SDO(Civil), Bhergaon, Dithakananda Hazarika, SDPO and Khoirabari Circle Officer along with the village heads of different villages under Khoirabari block, VDPs, VCDCs and public of Khoirabari.
The meeting was presided over by the SDO (Civil), Dithakananda Hazarika and the issue of claiming of entry of names in the recent list was thoroughly discussed. DC Dilip Kumar Das said that after the NRC draft would be published anybody whose name was not published in the draft could claim and raise objections. Only after the draft was published and after the verification of those issues only, the final NRC draft would be published. He further added if anybody’s name was not found in the draft he would get a chance to re-apply for publishing his name but only through fair means where re -verification would take place again and if the name of any suspicious person was seen in the draft, objection too could be raised.
The DC said that nobody should get provoked by any type of rumours through social media or hate speeches practised by some miscreants who always tried to disrupt the peaceful atmosphere of the society through provocative messages. The SDO (civil) said, “We all want the NRC process to continue in a peaceful manner and claims and objections might be there which can be solved officially. We urge the public to co-operate with the administration.”
