No reason to be worried over NRC

NEW DELHI: Union home minister Rajnath Singh said no Indian living in Assam would be left out in the updated NRC in Assam.

Replying to Saugata Roy of Trinamool Congress in Parliament on Thursday, Singh said process is on to update NRC in the north eastern state under the direct supervision of the Supreme Court.

Singh was responding to Roy who alleged that NRC is a conspiracy in Assam against the Bangla speaking people in the state. His party chief and West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday asked her MPs to go all out against NRC in Parliament. She in her address in a public rally in Birbhum called it a conspiracy to drive out the Bangla speaking lots and said that if these people are tortured she won't remain calm.
