“After the publication of final draft of National Register of Citizens (NRC) on July 31 next, lakhs of Bengalis’ eyes will be filled with tears. Especially those who took shelter in India at the time of partition to safeguard their religion.”

This statement was being made on Tuesday by Bijoy Chakraborty, general secretary of Assam Nagrik Moncha of Hojai in Assam, through a press communique.

As per the press communique, on last June 28, NRC state coordinator Prateek Hajela’s sudden visit to Hojai district has created suspicion.

The communique stated that the state coordinator took stock of NRC activities and held a long confidential meeting of five hours with all the officials involved in NRC update process of Hojai district at Rabindranath Tagore University.

Even media persons were not allowed to cover the story.

According to the release, the walls do also have ears too, nothing is confidential now.

As per Assam Nagrik Moncha sources, Hajela gave many strict directions to the officers orally.

And, if this oral orders are being really followed and implemented then in the final draft of NRC more than 20 lakhs Bengalis’ names will be cut and 90 per cent of which will be Hindu Bengalis.

According to Assam Nagrik Mancho it is a matter of concern.

So through this press communique they have attracted the attention of Supreme Court, Central Government, State Government, state coordinator Prateek Hajela and the organizations which filed petitions in Supreme court in relation to NRC.

The organization have requested all to take back the oral directions given to NRC officials to safeguard the Bengalis who were the victims of partition and now are in ‘danger zone’ of NRC.
