Silchar, April 1: The All Cachar Karimganj Hailakandi Students Association has taken a dig at Assam government for backing the “illogical” demands of AASU and Assam Sahitya Sabha regarding NRC update.

The students’ body alleged that a huge conspiracy is being hatched to sideline the Bengali community in the garb of updating the much debated tiol Register of Citizens and the state government is playing to the tunes of in this regard.

The student body is of the view that attempts are being made to deny the Bengali speaking populace of citizenship which can divide Assam and fears that the developments could lead to blood bath in Barak Valley in support of a separate state. Rupam ndi Purkyastha, advisor of ACKHSA’s central committee has stressed that the conspiracy to redefine the Assamese identity by making the 1951 tiol Register of Citizens as the base year should be stopped at any cost. He said that ACKSHA favours the process of updating the NRC but the way the state government is playing into the hands of AASU and Assam Sahitya Sabha only spells trouble as a particular section is being targeted.

ndi Purkyastha stressed that ACKSHA wants that the procedure to update the NRC in Assam should be carried out in accordance with modalities that have been decided for entire India. Why should a separate modality be in place for Assam? It cannot be accepted that bodies like AASU and Assam Sahitya Sabha is showing more ‘proactive’ than the state government regarding NRC. The student body made it clear that any attempt to deny citizenship to genuine Bengali speaking Indians will not be tolerated.

He said that ACKSHA is in favour of an Assam which is free from foreigners as it can have adverse impact o the economy of the state and refused to accept the NRC which considers 1951 as the base year for judging the eligibility of a person to be considered as a citizen of India. ACKSHA has appreciated the fact that Prab Gogoi has invited a delegation of Barak Valley based Banga Sahitya O Sangskritik Samelan to discuss the matter, although it thinks that the move comes a little late.
