�Bid to mislead NRC process to facilitate migrants� inclusion�

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 6 - Some evil forces are trying to identify the �Deshi Janagosthiya� people of Assam with the �Miyans�, which has a political connotation. While the former are aboriginals of Assam, the latter are the migrants from the erstwhile East Pakistan (presently Bangladesh) or their descendants, said Enamul Haque, president of the Deshi Janagosthiya Jatiya Samsad, in a statement here today.

Haque, who is an advocate, said the sinister forces that are now trying to identify the Deshi Janagosthiya people with the Miyans have even been able to mislead even the present president of the Asam Sahitya Sabha.

In fact, the whole attempt of these forces, to create confusion over the identity of the Miyans and that of the Deshi Janagosthiya people, is aimed at misleading the ongoing process of updating the National Register of Citizens (NRC) so as to facilitate entry of the names of the post-1971 illegal migrants in the document as genuine Indians, Haque said.

These evil forces were behind the violence aimed at thwarting the pilot project undertaken to update the NRC at Barpeta, whereas the Deshi Janagosthiya people, whom these forces describe as the �Ujani� people, were always for updating the NRC in a proper manner.

The Deshi Janagosthiya people never identify themselves with the Miyans and a lot of historical records are there to prove their credentials as genuine Indians of aboriginal nature. Even the British colonial authorities had described these people as the �Muslim Koch� people while conducting a survey in the last part of the 19th century, said Haque, making an appeal to the authorities concerned and the national organisations of the State to consider these facts earnestly.
