TANGLA, May 23: The All Assam Minorities Students’ Union (AAMSU) Udalguri district committee has expressed grave concern over alleged harassment of illiterate persons by officials in the ongoing family tree verification process of NRC. The students’ body has written to the District Registrar of Citizen Registration (DRCR) and Deputy Commissioner of Udalguri, Dilip Kumar Das, seeking his intervention in the matter.
The students’ body in its memorandum stated that a large number of people who visit the centres from far-flung areas were being allegedly harassed even after possession of proper documents and demanded steps to resolve the matter. The memorandum stated that though the students’ body favoured completion of an error-free NRC, it did not want citizens to be harassed mentally or economically in the process. It demanded that the process be made hassle-free and error-free.
