Political Adviser to Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, H. T. Imam states that the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi has assured Bangladesh that people excluded from the National Register of Citizens (NRC) exercise in Assam will not be sent back to Bangladesh.
Imam says, "Prime Minister Modi has personally assured our Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina that those not on the NRC list of Assam would not be sent to Bangladesh in the near future."
The Bangladesh Political Adviser has, however, denied to share further details on the assurance made by the Indian PM and kept the time when this promise was made by the PM as a secret from media. But this is being asserted by him that, "Assurance was given to our PM. Whatever is happening in Assam regarding NRC is internal to India. During 1947 large number of people including high profile leaders had migrated to India. It is not possible (to displace people) now."
