Assam: Two MLAs among the 40lakh people left out of NRC
GUWAHATI, July 31, 2018: With 40lakh people out of Assam citizens' list, two MLAs namely Rama Kanta Dewri of BJP and Ananta Kumar Malo of opposition All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) were also among the population who missed out on the National Register of Citizens (NRC) draft.
Dewri said, "Only those who had doubts about their citizenship had applied for inclusion of their names in NRC. I am a son of the soil and hence, I didn't feel like applying for it. It is shameful for the indigenous people to apply for inclusion of their names in NRC".
For the NRC draft, Dewri had not applied for inclusion of his name
The Assam NRC list had also missed AIUDF MLA Ananta Kumar Malo's name in its list. When tried contacting the MLA, he was not available for a comment.
