Guwahati, Aug 2: Assam Governor on Thursday supported Assm NRC issue, saying the Central government has right to know about the foreigners staying in the state or country.
Assam Governor, Jagdish Mukhi, said, "Draft of NRC is historical for Assamese people as it has been done as per wishes of Assamese and Assam accord. Many people are worried over non-inclusion of their names in NRC, I assure them that anyone who is an Indian their name will certainly be there in final NRC report."
"Government assured that each and every Indian shall be included in the final NRC report and guarantees security of each and every citizen in the stat, " said the Governor.
He further said that Central government has the right to know about the foreigners staying in the state or country. "It will be better if every state has NRC prepared, they should not only prepare NRC rather they should update it with every census, this will ensure full proof security in the country, " he added.
The NRC issue has become bone of contention between the ruling BJP and opposition parties in the Parliament. The NRC issue continued to disrupt Parliament proceedings for the third consecutive day. Like Tuesday, Rajya Sabha had to be adjourned early even on Wednesday after the Upper House witnessed unruly scenes when Chairman Venkaiah Naidu asked BJP president Amit Shah to conclude his statement over the final draft of National Register of Citizens (NRC).
