GUWAHATI: What citizens will have to do in the post-NRC scene in the State? A citizens’ meeting was held in Guwahati on Sunday to this effect.
Senior advocate Hafis Rashid Ahmed Choudhury, Ashish Dasgupta, advocate Abdul Rahman Sikdar, advocate Minmoy Dutta and others spoke at the meeting that discussed various issues. Most of the speakers spelt out as to how a genuine Indian whose name may not appear in the final National Register of Citizens to be published on July 31 will have to proceed to get his names enrolled in the citizens’ list. Any person or his/her families with their names not appearing in the final National Register of Citizens will have to register their names in the foreigners tribunals within 60 days with an appeal. In the event of the person or persons against whom there are objections appear in the final National Register of Citizens, the objector(s) has/have the right to move FT against the inclusion of the names in the final NRC. The FTs are going to dispose of such cases in accordance with National Register of Citizens rules. It augurs well for each and every citizen to be aware of NRC rules and regulations.
