GUWAHATI, Sept 24 - The All BTC Minority Students� Union (ABMSU) today alleged that in the final draft NRC, some officials concerned had �willingly excluded� names of a large number of minority people of Assam.
In a memorandum submitted to the Chief Minister, the ABMSU urged the State government to appoint only neutral officials in the NRC updating process so that names of all genuine Indian citizens are included in the final NRC.
The minority student body also urged the government to take all necessary measures so that the Supreme Court withdraws its order on the exclusion of five documents from the claims and objections process of NRC.
It also alleged that the notices served to the people excluded from the final draft NRC contain lots of errors. The ABMSU demanded that those notices are reviewed thoroughly in the interest of publishing a final NRC bereft of any error.
The ABMSU, which staged a sit-in demonstration at the Last Gate here on the first day of the autumn session of the Assam Legislative Assembly today, in the memorandum also complained about the slow trial process for the D-voters in the State. The organisation demanded that the legal process be speeded up while providing necessary facilities to all D-voters as per the rules enshrined in the Constitution.
On the other hand, the ABMSU slammed the State government for its alleged inability to arrest the murderer of Lafikul Islam, the then president of ABMSU who was shot dead by motorcycle-borne miscreants on August 1 of 2017 in the central part of Kokrajhar town.
The probe into the murder is being carried out by the CBI, but it is moving at a very slow pace, the ABMSU alleged, and demanded a fast and neutral investigation.
The ABMSU also demanded a tripartite talk with the CBI and the Assam Police to review the progress of the probe. It called for taking all steps to prevent Lohit Mushahary and Ranendra Mushahary, who were allegedly involved in the murder, from getting interim bail in the case.
