NEW DELHI, April 10 � The All Assam Students Union (AASU) on Friday called on the Election Commission of India for preparation of all future electoral rolls in the State on the basis of the updated National Register of Citizens (NRC).

Meanwhile, Chief Election Commissioner HS Brahma told newsmen that the new electoral rolls in Assam would be prepared on the basis of updated NRC.

A delegation of the students� body led by outgoing adviser, Samujjal Bhattacharya today met Chief Election Commissioner, H S Brahma and handed over written submissions along with copies of the rulings of the Supreme Court and Gauhati High Court regarding the voter�s list and the problem of illegal Bangladeshi migrants.

AASU alleged that the voter list of Assam contain names of lakhs of illegal Bangladeshi migrants. Even the Supreme Court has described the large scale immigration to Assam as external aggression and creating the ground for internal disturbances.

The Gauhati High Court has said that Bangladeshi migrants have become king-maker. If such a situation continues that the indigenous people would become minority in their own land and the illegal Bangladeshi migrants would take over power, it asserted.

Since the work on updating the NRC has started the proper steps should be taken to ensure that names of foreigners are kept out of the electoral rolls, Bhattacharya said.
