Want B’deshis included in NRC!

A Congress MP from Assam wants the Hindu Bangladeshi  people to be included in the NRC creating controversy in the state’s political circle. She is none other than    Sushmita Deb.

The Silchar MP has written to President Pranab Mukherjee seeking his intervention saying that the Hindu immigrants should be taken into consideration in the on going process to update NRC.

Her demand, however, is not new. For the last several years, BJP has been making the same demand before the Centre only to gain political mileage.

But many parties and organizations have called it a move that could help the Bangladehsi immigrants stay back.
