NRC will settle issues relating to infiltration: Uttarakhand CM


New Delhi, Nov 23: Welcoming the Centre's decision to implement the NRC process across the country, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat said the exercise will permanently settle issues related to infiltration and anti-national elements. He said the exercise is particularly important for border states like Uttarakhand.

His remarks came after Union Home Minister Amit Shah told Rajya Sabha on Wednesday that the process of National Register of Citizens (NRC) will be carried out across the country and no one, irrespective of their religion, should be worried.

"Implementing NRC across the country is a good step. Uttarakhand has open international borders. So, NRC acquires more importance here and in other border states," Rawat told reporters here on Thursday.

"Implementation of NRC will permanently settle issues related to infiltration and anti-national elements," he said.
