SILCHAR: The on going process to update NRC has raised doubts over the citizenship of a senior Congress leader who needs to undergo reverification. He is non other than Siddeque Ahmed, the former minister in the erstwhile Tarun Gogoi government whose name is not available in the NRC, 1951.
Ahmed, who was elected thrice from Karmganj claimed to have been a native of Dhalopar gaon in Patherkandi police station who is facing reverification on Thursday a week after he was served a notice. According to sources, Abdul Rakib, whom he claimed to be his father is available in the 1951NRC. On the other hand, his brothers have not received any notification to be reverified.
