PPFA demands a correct NRC with 1951 cut-off  year

55

Patriotic People’s Front Assam (PPFA), while expressing
worries at a police complaint  lodged by the National Register of Citizens
(NRC) Assam coordinator Hitesh Dev Sarma against his predecessor
Prateek Hajela for deceitfully including names of suspected
individuals in the NRC with software tempering urges both the
governments in New Delhi and Dispur to support a complete
re-verification of NRC with the national cut-off date.
The forum of nationalist citizens termed the development whereas a
senior government officer lodged an FIR with the criminal
investigation department against the former NRC State coordinator as
disturbing. The specific allegation regarding the entry of illegal
individuals in the list of Indian nationals through an error-driven
the technical process must be investigated for a correct NRC under
monitoring of the Supreme Court. Everyone, who was allegedly involved
with the unethical practice, should also be scanned, started the forum.
“We demand a complete re-verification of NRC Assam with 1951 as the
finished year. But even if we have to recognize the cut-off date (24
March 1971) mentioned in the Assam Accord, the identification of the
individuals in those years should be made for the government record,”
said a PPFA statement, adding that the indigenous population must come
forward raising their ultimate  demand for an accurate (in true to its
term) NRC.
The forum argues that for any reason a State cannot have a different
year to identify the illegal migrants from the national cut-off year.
The issue must be debated in the Parliament to make a final resolution
that Assam will continue to have a delayed cut-off year to identify
the foreigners. Subsequently, the original inhabitants of the State
must be protected under legal provisions, it concluded.
