GUWAHATI, Aug 28: Prabajan Virodhi Manch (PVM) convener and senior advocate Upamanyu Hazarika welcomed the Supreme Court’s direction for 10% sample verification in every district of the state. In a release, Hazarika said, “It is a fact as pointed out in my representation of August 26, to the Registrar General of India (RGI) and State Coordinator of NRC, Assam that there are fundamental flaws in the procedure adopted, which cannot be corrected or rectified through the claims and objection process. The flaws are institutional and intrinsic to the process and can be rectified only through re-verification at the institutional level.” It is a matter of concern that though the flaws and the discrepancies were within the knowledge of the RGI and NRC authorities, however they chose to keep silent and the draft list in the present form, if it becomes final would have included a large number of foreigners, Hazarika added.
