GUWAHATI, Aug 10 - Asserting that the State government would �fight� for securing the rights of every genuine Indian citizen during the National Register of Citizens (NRC) updating process, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today told the Assembly that the government would move the Registrar General of India (RGI) and the Supreme Court for ensuring that no name of any genuine Indian citizen remained left out of the NRC.

Gogoi said the State government had petitioned the Supreme Court over the issues and that the apex court did not reject it.

The State government had called for inclusion of post-1971 voters� lists including the 2014 voters� list as additional documents for determining citizenship status.

Gogoi, who sought to assuage the apprehensions voiced by several legislators including Utpal Dutta (AGP), Keshab Mahanta (AGP), Phanibhushan Choudhury (AGP), Aminul Islam (AIUDF), Rafikul Islam (AIUDF), Ardhendu Dey (Congress) and Pallab Lochan Das (Congress) over the ongoing NRC updating process, said no political party had objected to the authenticity of the voters� lists and that elections had been held on the basis of those voters� lists.
