“The NRC process will do according to the Supreme Court order,” Amit Shah told.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday announced that the National Register of Citizens (NRC) will be implemented in the entire country. However, he did not define when that will occur.
In an exclusive interview to India Today TV, Amit Shah told the NRC method in Assam was done according to the order and directions of the Supreme Court.
“The NRC process in Assam was done according to the Supreme Court order,” Amit Shah said.
Amit Shah also confirmed that the NRC will be implemented in the entire country.
“In the future, whenever the NRC is implemented in the country, it will be prepared on the basis of the knowledge we had in Assam. We will bring a leak-proof process of the NRC,” Amit Shah told.
Political View: When questioned if the NRC is just a political weapon or has any benefit, Amit Shah replied, “It was not done by us. It was according to the procedure of the Supreme Court.”
On August 31, the NRC officials published the final list in Assam from which higher than 19 lakh people were excluded.
A total of 3,30,27,661 persons had applied for the addition of their names in the NRC in Assam. Out of the entire applicants, 3,11,21,004 persons have been determined eligible for inclusion in the final NRC. 19,06,657 persons have been left out from the list.
Those persons excluded from the final NRC were given 120 days’ time opportunity to file an application before the Foreigners Tribunals.
