Union textile minister Smriti Irani on Tuesday said no genuine Indian citizen would suffer following the publication of the final list of National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam.

Speaking at an event in Kolkata, Irani said that while infiltrators would face the law, every genuine Indian citizen will find place in NRC.

The final list of the NRC was published in Assam on August 31.

“No Indian will be left out, it is our commitment. We are dedicated towards protecting the rights of all the citizens of the country,” Irani told reporters.

“At the same time, illegal infiltrators will be dealt with as per the law,” she added.
