NESO for NRC update in all NE States

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, May 17 - Pushing for a comprehensive approach in dealing with illegal influx, the North East Students� Organisation (NESO) today asked the Centre to update the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in other north-eastern States in the lines of Assam, with 1951 as the base year.

An executive body meeting of the eight constituent students� bodies of the NESO also asked the Union Government to realise the region specific needs of the Northeast, in its policies related to education, economy and security.

NESO chairman Samuel Jyrwa, while addressing the media here, said that the NRC update in Assam was a welcome move, but other States facing similar problem of illegal migrations and its daunting impact on economy and socio-cultural fabric, must get a similar measure to protect the indigenous tribes and communities.

�Union Government was yet to take up the specific issues of the North East in a desired way. For a clear picture on the penetration of illegal migrants in the region, the NRC must be updated in other NE States, with 1951 as the base year. We also demand total repeal of the draconian Armed Forced (Special Power) Act (AFSPA),� he added.

advisor Dr Samujjal Bhattacharyya stated that the Northeast cannot be allowed as a grazing ground for the illegal foreigners. �No fresh instructions by the Union Government for accommodating more illegal foreigners would be accepted by the NESO. The Manipur and Assam accords must also be implemented, and the question of review of these accords does not arise,� he said.

The forum of NE students� bodies would approach the Governors in their respective States with the memorandums on their various demands within this month. Prime Minister and the Union Home Minister would also be given memorandums incorporating the major demands of the NESO.

It also asked the Union and the State Governments of Northeast to approach the Supreme Court on the complication faced by the NE students due to National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET). NESO said that students coming from the backward areas, studying in vernacular languages would be deprived of an equal opportunity due to this.

On Union Government�s announcement about a new educational policy, Bhattacharyya said that the region must get a specific academic policy whereby new educational institutions and new technical and non technical courses must be introduced as required.

�We have a broad map on State specific requirement, which will be forwarded to the centre,� he added.

The students� bodies also resolved to put a strong deterrence against the drug menace in the region.

Representatives of AASU, All Manipur Students� Union, Khasi Students� Union, Garo Students� Union, Tripura Students Federation, All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union, Mizo Zirlai Pawl and Naga Students� federation took part in the meeting.
