Police and security forces have geared up to tackle any possible law and order breakdown in the aftermath of the NRC publication


The Assam state administration is gearing up to maintain peace and stability ahead of the publication of the state’s final National Register of Citizens (NRC) list scheduled to be published on Monday.

Speaking at a women conclave in Mangaldoi of Assam on Saturday, Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said: “If any genuine Indian citizen finds his or her name excluded from the NRC list, he or she should not be worried as there are ample opportunities for enrolling one’s name in accordance with the well laid-out procedures prescribed by India’s Supreme Court, which is monitoring the entire process of updating the NRC.”

“A section of people are attempting to spread a wave of misinformation on the NRC update process across the state on the basis of caste, religion and such canards should not be paid heed. Anybody resorting to the social media for materializing their malicious designs of creating discord shall be dealt with stern legal actions,” the chief minister said.

Meanwhile, speaking to reporters in Guwahati on Saturday, Himanta Biswa Sarma, a senior minister of Assam, echoed CM Sonowal’s lines for allaying misapprehensions. He said: “Nobody’s rights and privileges will be usurped on the basis of the NRC. Nobody will be sent to any detention camp.”

“After the final publication, there will be claims, objections and correction procedure and people will be able to avail these services,” he added.

Meanwhile, the police and security forces have geared up to tackle any possible law and order breakdown in the aftermath of the NRC publication.

India’s central government has deployed armed forces in vulnerable areas of Assam as confirmed by officials of Assam’s Home Department.

These forces are the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB), Border Security Force (BSF), Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), Railway Protection Force (RPF) and Special Auxiliary Police (SAP).

Meanwhile, leaves of government employees in Assam have been cancelled by the state government till Aug 15, taking into account the occurrence of any emergency that might take place after the NRC publication.
