NRC flaws to be rectified

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, July 25 � Government spokesperson Himanta Biswa Sarma on Sunday said that there are a few flaws in the NRC update process and the Government would correct those after discussing with all parties and organizations concerned, including the AASU and the AAMSU and restart the NRC update process in the State.

The NRC update process that was started as a pilot project in Barpeta and Chaygaon revenue circles has been suspended by the Government following the Barpeta incident when police had to resort to firing to disperse a violent and mayhem-creating mob that had gathered to protest the pilot project responding to the AAMSU�s call.

Sarma said that though the situation has returned to normal in Barpeta, there was simmering tension in the district and the Government has taken all steps, including deployment of three additional paramilitary forces to maintain law and order.

He said that a report in this connection would be submitted to the Chief Minister when he returns home. Sarma hinted that a third force might have been behind the incident to gain political mileage.
