SILCHAR, April 7 � The mood swinging comments by the BJP on the issue of National Register of Citizens (NRC) are only to drive home political gains, said local MP Susmita Dev.

On the sidelines of a felicitation function at the Indira Bhawan, organized by the Silchar District Congress Committee for the newly elected commissioners from the party to the Silchar Municipal Board, the parliamentarian said the recent comments by Union Sports Minister Sarbananda Sonowal pressing for 1951 to be the base year for NRC update reflects the party�s intent which is only to make political advantage.

�Sonowal, a former AASU leader was himself a signatory to the Assam Accord and agreed on the point that 1971 should be the cutoff year for ousting the illegal Bangladeshi immigrants,� Susmita Dev said. When they come to the Barak Valley, the BJP leaders make one brand of statement and do the opposite when they leave the valley, the Silchar MP alleged.

Asked on the stand of the Silchar Congress regarding the NRC, she said, �The law is 1971. (The) Matter ends there. The Congress party has rejected the report of the Speaker on the floor of the Assembly. This is the stand of the APCC and also of the Congress party.� She was quick to add that as per the government website, 1971 is the cutoff year and the Chief Minister has agreed on this.
