Sabrang Staff 29 Aug 2019

The Sentinel. Guwahati reports that, with the deadline for the publication of the final NRC (National Register of Citizens) just two days away, the Assam government has increased security at the 14 sensitive districts as well as the NRC State Coordinator’s HQ at Bhangagarh here. There are 2,500 Nagrik Seva Kendras all over the state and these too have got security, besides the officers of the district collectors and other government offices.

While people in Assam, especially from the affected communities which includes ethnic, linguistic and religious minorities are maintaining calm and a policy of ‘wait and watch’ the government has deployed personnel of the Assam Police and the CAPF (Central Armed Police Force) in all 33 of the state’s districts. Besides, there have been an additional deployment, according to the Sentinel, in the 14 of the ‘sensitive’ districts.

Assam eagerly awaits August 31, 2019.  Speaking to Sabrangindia today, Mustafa Khaddam Hussain, legal adviser to All Assam Minority Students Union (AAMSU) said,”

“On Saturday, after 10 a.m. the publication will happen. (the time has been changed from 9 a.m.). Those excluded need to individually check online using their own ARN numbers, the reason for the exclusions. As far as those included is concerns, there are those who were included last year (2018 list) but against whom some persons have filed objections; they have to check their status at the respective Nagrik Seva Kendras (NSKs). Then there are those who have now been included after the Claims and Objections Process has been completed. They too have to go to the NSKs. So expect one thing: there will be huge crowds at the 2,500 NSKs all over Assam.

“The message we are giving out to everyone is that maintain calm, keep hopes alive till the list is out. Remember people –at great cost and agony –have participated in this process since 2009. After the result, we shall speak.
