After Home Minister Amit Shah announced a nationwide NRC in Rajya Sabha on Wednesday, mixed reactions followed up from leaders in the region.
Expressing dissatisfaction many questioned the centre on the validity of the existing NRC in Assam, while many welcomed the move.
Rejecting Centre’s decision of pan-India NRC, Kaliabor MP Gaurav Gogoi took a veiled attack on BJP.
Taking to Twitter, Gogoi questioned the NRC exercise in Assam and the government’s acceptability. He wrote, “If the NRC is so successful then why is it rejected by the BJP in Assam?” He further trained his guns at the Centre and wrote “BJP could not implement an error free NRC for 3 crore people in Assam. But Home Minister Amit Shah wants a national NRC for 130 crore persons. Clearly “vikas” and “jobs” was never BJP’s agenda.”
