NGO concerned over exclusion of Indian citizens


GUWAHATI, Sept 1 - NGO Save Guwahati Build Guwahati (SGBG) has welcomed the final NRC, which is the first such exercise to solve the foreigners� problem.

The organisation at the same time expressed its concern over the exclusion of genuine Indian citizens and the inclusion of foreign nationals in the register.

�The entire exercise was undertaken under huge pressure generated by the people of Assam. It�s a positive development that the document has come out finally. But again, we have reasons to believe that a huge number of illegal foreigners have been included in the list. This cannot be accepted as it would defeat the very purpose of the NRC,� SGBG founder president Dhiren Baruah and general secretary Kailash Sarma said.

The NGO also appealed to the authorities concerned to ensure that no genuine Indian citizens are left out in the process.

It also appealed to the government to provide adequate support to the citizens so that they do not face any harassment while undergoing the process of proving their citizenship.
