GUWAHATI, July 29 - Along with the administration and security forces, the major political parties of the State have also geared up for the publication of the complete draft of the National Register of Citizens (NRC).
The president of the State unit of the BJP, Ranjeet Dass, has directed all the booth-level office-bearers of the party to extend their help to all the genuine Indian citizens, whose names might not appear in the draft to be published at 10 am tomorrow.
In a press release, Dass pointed out that if the name of any genuine Indian citizen does not appear in the NRC, he or she would get enough chances to file claims and objections. He called upon the BJP workers to extend all possible help to such persons to file their claims and objections.
Dass appealed to all sections of people of the State not to pay heed to any rumours on the NRC.
The Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president Ripun Bora, on the other hand, has set up a control room in the headquarters of the party. The control room will start functioning from 9 am tomorrow and will be in touch with the district and block-level committees of the party. The persons manning the control room will also remain in touch with the party workers across the State to closely monitor the situation.
