GUWAHATI, July 29 - To help people find their names in the National Register of Citizens (NRC), the All Assam Students� Union (AASU) will open an �NRC room� at the Swahid Bhawan, Uzan Bazar here tomorrow.
�In the historic moment of publication of the second and final draft of the NRC, the student body would extend its help and cooperation to the citizens through its NRC room to be opened at 9 am tomorrow. As soon as the draft is published on the official website, the citizens can avail the services of AASU�s NRC room to find their names in the draft. Our experts would be present to guide the people, specially those who are not well-versed with operating computers,� the student body said.
Through the central NRC room in Guwahati, the student body will coordinate with all its district units across the State and would monitor the situation. In this regard, the AASU is also in touch with 28 organisations representing different ethnic communities of the State.
�An accurate and foolproof NRC, on the basis of the historic Assam Accord, has been a long-pending demand of AASU. Prepared under the monitoring and supervision of the Supreme Court of India, a correct NRC will be major tool for solving the foreigners issue, affecting the social and demographic fabric of Assam. The people of Assam are now looking forward to the publication of an error-free NRC, without the names of illegal foreigners. We also hope that the second draft will be published in a peaceful environment,� student leaders Dr Samujjal Bhattacharya, Dipanka Kumar Nath and Lurin Jyoti Gogoi said.
