From the discussions and opinions of different intellectuals (non- political), it has been inferred that the majority of the people of Assam are in favor of the NRC published recently. Although the present NRC is not a foolproof document, yet it can be termed as saying, “Something is better than nothing”. Had the Supreme Court not intervened and the BJP government, not at the Centre, such a document like the NRC would not have materialized. The previous government machinery coupled with some corrupt officials under successive governments in Assam created such a state that detection and deportation of even one lakh foreigners is a Herculean task. Now, it will be better if the existing NRC is rectified and works for detection and deportation of illegal foreigners along with the complete sealing of border for preventing future infiltration are carried out at the earliest.
