SILCHAR, April 29 � In its latest move on the National Register of Citizens (NRC), the All Cachar Karimganj Hailakandi Students Association (ACKHSA) through a memorandum to the Prime Minister of India has demanded that the electoral rolls of 2014 general elections be made the basis of renewal of the NRC. The student body has called a 12-hour Barak Valley bandh on May 2 next from 5 am to 5pm on the issue.

Staging a protest demonstration outside the office of the Deputy Commissioner here, the ACKHSA cadres said that the 1951 voter�s list was the basis of the previous NRC. Hence the 2014 electoral roll with photo identity cards must be the basis of the NRC update.

Rupam Nandi Purkayastha, chief advisor of the student body, said, �the D-voters have already been excluded from the 2014 voter�s list. This validates that those with the voter�s photo identity cards are Indian citizens.� He added to say that if the voter�s card is ignored in the present process, there will be legal questions on the constitutional validity of the members of Parliament elected by the people.

Further, he said that the photo identity cards are issued by the Election Commission of India which is a statutory body. The Government has no authority to nullify it and should accept the cards as valid documents.

The ACKHSA cadres also pressed for the appointment of Central observers in the renewal process of the NRC so that discrepancies could be prevented.
