Perfume baron Badaruddin Ajmal-led the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) has written to NRC State Coordinator Prateek Hajela saying people across Assam facing problems resulting out of the NRC verification process.
In a letter written to Hajela on Wednesday, AIUDF chief Ajmal called upon the NRC authorities to take steps to deal with the issues being faced by citizens of the State.
“We have observed that some people are not getting their notices on time, mentioning verification date and place, and facing problems. As the verification centre may be located at any place and distance, people should get the information well in advance to attend the verification centre as specified in the notice. People, particularly in lower Assam districts like Dhubri and Goalpara, are receiving notices even after the fixed dates are over,” Ajmal said.
“Secondly, it is a matter of regret that the verification centres are not equipped with sanitary facilities and people coming from distant places are facing problems,” he said.
He also urged the authorities concerned to construct temporary sanitary facilities at the verification centres for the convenience of people.
Praising Hajela for his effort to bring out the second draft of the NRC within the stipulated time, the AIUDF chief said names of no genuine Indian citizen should be left out in the final draft.
