SILCHAR, July 24 - Ahead of the publication of the final draft of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) on July 30, Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal today allayed fear of the people; particularly those belonging to religious and linguistic minority groups in the State with assurances of total security.
Addressing a gathering of women after inaugurating the Kanaklata Women Empowerment Scheme at the Karimganj DSA today, Sonowal said �there is no reason to panic since no genuine Indian citizen will be left out from the NRC list. The Government is committed towards ensuring security for all. I urge upon people not to pay heed to the rumours which are being spread to create chaos at this crucial hour.� He was quick to emphasize that unlike the Congress government, the BJP-led government is committed to work for simultaneous development of Barak and Brahmaputra valleys.
Elaborating on the Kanaklata Women Empowerment Scheme, the Chief Minister said that it is a flagship scheme of the Assam State Rural Livelihood Mission aimed to create congenial conditions for the women in the rural areas.
