NEW DELHI, Dec 22 - The Centre has denied the allegation that it is harassing �D� voters in Assam.

Issuing notice to �D� voters, whose names have been forwarded to the Foreigners Tribunals, is a legal process and there is no question of harassing people, said Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju in a Lok Sabha reply to a question by AIUDF MP Sirajuddin Ajmal.

�D� voters are not detained in detention camps. Only persons declared by the Tribunals as foreigners are kept in the detention centres. The State Government has instructed the border police organisations to be careful so that genuine Indian citizens are not harassed.

According to a report from the Government of Assam, verification of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) applications is still continuing, Rijiju said, adding, Assam Parliamentary Affairs Minister Rakibul Hussain had said that the figure concerning ex parte judgements was being sought from the deputy commissioners of the districts.

Meanwhile, in reply to another question, Rijiju said that the Centre has sanctioned Rs 165.79 crore for fencing of the Indo-Bangladesh border. Last fiscal (2014-2015), an amount of Rs 209.05 crore was sanctioned for the project. In comparison, the Centre has sanctioned only Rs 4 crore for fencing a small patch of about 10 km along the Indo-Myanmar border.
