Assam issue India's internal matter: Official UNB, Dhaka

The NRC has been updated after nearly seven decades as part of a campaign to identify undocumented immigrants from Bangladesh

Kolkata: Following the release of the final draft of Assam's National Register of Citizens (NRC), a delegation of the All India Trinamool Congress (TMC) has chose to visit the state in the first week of August.

The decision to impose a state-wide register of citizens has drawn parallels with Myanmar's Rakhine State, where Rohingya Muslims have long faced persecution owing to their Bangladeshi ancestry.

Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya, a stateless Muslim minority, were driven out of Myanmar past year and are now in refugee camps in Bangladesh.

According to officials of the government, no large scale migration has taken place after the War of Independence or is taking place now from Bangladesh and Assam.

There have been no reports of violence and security remains tight. He said, "The NRC is a collective effort of all sections, the Supreme Court, the RGI, the central and the state governments and the people".

Activists of All Assam Students' Union (AASU), along with 28 other organizations walk during a protest rally against India's Citizenship Amendment Bill 2016 in Gauhati, northeastern Assam state, India, last month. "The publication of the complete draft will go a long way in achieving what an agitation (against illegal migrants from 1979-1985) nearly four decades ago had sought to", he said.

The government of Assam should ensure that no legal Indian citizens are denied citizenship because of the lack of some documents. "Instructions have been given in UP to cooperate with Assam authorities", he said.

The government said those missing from the list would have a chance to resubmit documents between August 30 and September 28, and had the option to appeal at the foreigners' tribunal.

Trade threats unnerve global markets
Mr Trump has ultimately threatened tariffs on more than $US500bn in Chinese goods, covering virtually all U.S. imports from China. China says the United States is trying to stop the rise of a competitor and it has imposed its own tariffs on US goods.

The Opposition has been all out to attack the ruling party following the release of the second and the final NRC draft list. "It has no relation to Bangladesh".

"Families should not be separated".

The chief minister also held talk with his Nagaland counterpart, who was well aware of the possible influx of people not listed in the NRC into the state. Assam, which had faced influx of people from Bangladesh since the early 20th century, is the only state having an NRC, which was first prepared in 1951. Will they be left in limbo without rights? Almost all were Muslim and many were children. Will they be pulled away from their homes and each other?

The government said the draft was not meant to drive people out and those struck out of the list would have a chance to reapply. "NRC is trying to finish us off. No punitive or penal action will be taken", added Sailesh.

The issue rocked both house of Parliament after which Home Minister Rajnath Singh appealed to the opposition not to politicise the "sensitive" matter as the list has been published on the directives of the Supreme Court and the Centre has "no role" in it. Will they put me in a detention camp?

In 1983, scores of people were chased down and killed by machete-armed mobs intent on hounding out Muslim immigrants.

Hajela said that most of Assam's 126,000 so-called doubtful voters, and an estimated 150,000 of their descendants, would be excluded from the NRC in accordance with a court order. The definitive list is to be finalised in December.
