GUWAHATI, Aug 3 � The All Assam Students� Union (AASU) today said that the update of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) is only solution to problems which erupted in Kokrajhar, Chirang and Dhubri districts.
In a press release issued to media today, the students� body, said, �Updating of NRC as per the Assam Accord is the only way out and there is not any alternative.�
�The Prime Minister, in his recent visit, had assured that necessary steps would be taken in regard to NRC update. The Chief Minister too was there and we hope that the process is not delayed anymore,� the AASU asserted.
The AASU reiterated its demand that the work on the Assam-Bangladesh border should be done on war-footing and the indigenous people of Assam must get their rights over the land.
�The Government must provide constitutional safeguard to the people of Assam and each of the clauses of the Assam Accord will have to be executed,� the AASU said.
The AASU also flayed the Government for overlooking the issue of illegal migrants, which the students had been raising.
�The Government could not start the process of NRC update till 2012 as per the decision taken in the tripartite talks held at the Prime Minister level. There cannot be a better example of political and administrative failure than this,� the AASU stated.
