GUWAHATI, Nov 15: The Assam State Committee of the CPI(M) has said that the statement made by Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind president Arshad Madani on NRC update is lethal enough to foment the commully-charged groups in Assam. The Left party has condemned the statement.
In a statement issued to the press on Wednesday, the Left party said: “NRC update work has been going on under the supervision of the Supreme Court of India. The documents being used for NRC update are also under the approval of the apex court. NRC update should be done in accordance with the guidelines and approval of the apex court. We’re going to oppose any move that may polarize people as majority and minority in Assam on NRC update.”
The Left party said that a section of people has been criticizing Hiren Gohain and the Left parties for the statement made by Madani. “They’re doing this for their vested political interests,” the statement said.
