GUWAHATI, July 11 - The AGP today alleged that the Congress is hatching a diabolic conspiracy to replace the names of the indigenous people with the names of the illegal Bangladeshi migrants in the National Register of Citizens (NRC) to keep its vote-bank politics buoyant.
AGP president Atul Bora said in a statement here that the Tarun Gogoi-led Congress Government has been defying the Supreme Court and also the Assam Accord in matters of updating the NRC. This is nothing but a reflection of the treacherous attitude of Tarun Gogoi and the Congress.
The State Government led by Tarun Gogoi has been siding with the illegal migrants since the very beginning of the process of updating the NRC. It has now become clear that a Cabinet sub-committee has been formed by this Government for the second time with the sole aim of providing protection to the illegal Bangladeshi migrants, Bora claimed.
Moreover, the decisions adopted by this Cabinet sub-committee, at its meeting on the updating process of the NRC are detrimental to the interest of the indigenous peoples of the State. These decisions are going to facilitate inclusion of the names of illegal Bangla migrants in the NRC in a covert manner. Chief Minister Gogoi has already initiated a political chorus to this effect using his Ministers and party MLAs, Bora alleged, and described such steps of the Congress-led Government as anti-national and a threat to the integrity and sovereignty of the country.
He warned against any move to make the 2014 electoral rolls as a basic document for updating the NRC. The AGP will resist such attempts with full might, Bora said.
