GUWAHATI, April 21 � Expressing concern over the manner in which the NRC update is being undertaken, the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) has decided to approach the Prime Minister and the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) to ensure that the process is completed in a fair and transparent manner.
A senior AIUDF leader said today that the party�s chief and Lok Sabha MP Badruddin Ajmal will meet the Prime Minister, the Union Home Minister and the Chief Election Commissioner in this regard.
�If necessary, we will also approach the Supreme Court,� said the leader.
He said that the NRC update process was not being carried out in a proper manner. �We believe some officials are hampering the process deliberately. Besides, relevant documents are not made available to citizens and this will lead to problems for the people. In many places, the NRC of 1951 is not available and has been stamped as �D� or �Damaged�. We want the process to be streamlined,� said the leader.
He said the AIUDF wanted the NRC update work to commence in a transparent manner. �We want all genuine citizens to be identified and at the same time, demand that no Indian citizen should face harassment. We also want all illegal immigrants to be identified,� he said.
