GUWAHATI, July 31 - The All India Gorkha League (AIGL) today urged Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal to take immediate step to address the problems faced the Gorkha community of the State in course of the NRC updating process. In a memorandum, the AIGL stated that short time allotted for hearing and NRC Sewa Kendras located far away are some prime issues due to which many Gorkha people are not able to include their names in the NRC.
The AIGL also alleged that lack of any provision to issue second-time notice to those who fail to attend the first hearing due to unavoidable circumstances, is also a major concern for them.
In the past few days, organisations like the Assam Nepali Sahitya Sabha, Akhil Assam Gorkha Sammelon, All Assam Gorkha Students� Union, Assam Gorkha Sammelon and Bharatiya Gorkha Parisangha have submitted a series of memoranda to the authorities on the NRC issue. The organisations have demanded inclusion of the Gorkha community of the State under the �Original Inhabitant� category in the NRC updating process.
