APCC reiterates stand on NRC

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, July 3 � The Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) today said that persons like Prafulla Kumar Mahanta and Sarbananda Sonowal could become Chief Minister of Assam and a Central Minister respectively depending on the State�s electoral rolls. But today they have refused to accept them as supporting documents for updating the National Register of Citizens (NRC).

The Congress has been blamed like anything for its assertion that electoral rolls should also be treated as supporting documents for updating the NRC, said APCC general secretary Mukul Sarma.

Alleging the other political parties of indulging in politics on the issue, Sarma said it is expected that things would be clear after the State Government submits its affidavit in the Supreme Court on the issue. The Supreme Court is expected to issue fresh guidelines in this connection, he said.
