Mahanta has alleged the update of NRC has been delayed due to insicerity of centre government. He has demanded early completion of NRC update across the state and identify foreigners. He also expresses serious concern over the snail pace of impementation of Assam Acoord as the accord has passed three decades. ‘The persons who are recahed before 1971 they would be treated as citizen of the state,those who are recahed after 1971 they be treated as illegal migrants’, Mahanta said.

Lafikul Islam ahmed,president of the ABMSU said the students union has decided to move to Supreme Court (SC) seeking use of panchayat or other concern certificates in the NRC update as recently SC had verdict that panchayat certificate would not be valid document in the NRC update in the state.

The NRC update should be implemented smoothly as per schedule of the project, but supplement document must be proper on the base of 1971 based year. ‘We support the proper implementation of NRC with strong spirit’, Islam said.
