NEW DELHI, Oct 12 - The All BTC Minority Students� Union (ABMSU) today staged a demonstration in the National Capital in protest against deletion of names in the draft National Register of Citizens (NRC).
Raising slogans against the ruling BJP and State NRC Coordinator Prateek Hajela, the demonstrators also demanded that the �D� voter system should be ended.
Talking to newsmen at the protest venue, Kokrajhar MP Naba Sarania alleged that the State NRC Coordinator has kept the Supreme Court in the dark. �We are filing a petition in the Supreme Court on October 23 pointing out certain facts, like discrepancies in the verification process,� he said.
Many people have filed applications but the documents were not properly verified, Sarania alleged, adding that this has led to deletion of a number of names.
The documents were not verified in a pre-planned manner at the lower level and even scrutiny was not done at Hajela�s level, he alleged.
Papers of the �D� voters too were not verified properly. The verification was not done properly and names were referred to the Foreigners� Tribunal without proper scrutiny, Sarania alleged.
