NILAMBAZAR, Nov 7 - The Citizen Rights Protection Coordination Committee stated a sit-in protest in front of the Karimganj Deputy Commissioner�s office on Wednesday, demanding closing of the �inhuman� detention camps and immediately releasing all the detained persons from the camps.
The group also demanded setting up of special judicial courts in Assam for appeals from people excluded from the NRC.
In a memorandum addressed to the Prime Minister, the committee said the Centre issued a gazette notification concerning citizenship on September 7, 2015, which spoke of the provisions for acquiring citizenship, but the said notification is yet to be executed in Assam. If this notification is implemented, it would be easy to solve the citizenship problems, it said.
Earlier, hundreds of members of the committee gathered at Ambedkar Park and took out a procession in Karimganj town. They submitted the memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner.
