GUWAHATI, Aug 1 - The youth wing of the Congress party today said that 40 lakh people having not found their names in the complete draft NRC is a matter of concern and called upon the authorities to take steps to prevent what it termed �anomalies� in the update process of the Register.
�APYC shows its deep concern about the huge number (40 lakh) of people whose names did not appear in the second draft of NRC. As the number of �D� voters and foreigners detected by tribunals comes out, it is noteworthy that on the basis of these facts the number of applicants who remained out of NRC should not have been so big,� said Kamrul Islam Choudhury, president of the Assam Pradesh Youth Congress. The Youth Congress leader termed the situation �an absurd outcome�.
�We appeal to the authorities concerned to take all the possible measures to correct the anomalies that occurred in the second draft,� he said, adding that the APYC is going to open help centres in all the districts to help people whose names are missing from the draft NRC.
Choudhury said no genuine Indian citizen should suffer and no foreigner�s name should be included in the NRC. The Youth Congress has also called upon the ruling BJP to refrain from playing any �political games� on the NRC issue.
