Giving an assurance to those genuine Indians whose names have been left out from final draft NRC in Assam, BJP’s National Executive on Sunday reassured that none of them shall be left out when the final NRC is published.
The BJP took a political resolution named New India by 2022 after its two-day-long national executive meeting in New Delhi.
“Publication of the National Register of Citizens, completed after a herculean effort by over 50,000 employees of the Assam government, is a monumental work is securing the cultural, economic and demographic interests of the state as well as the national security interests of India,” the political resolution moved by Home Minister Rajnath Singh said.
The resolution adopted by the party assumes wider significance as lakhs of genuine Indians living in Assam have been left out from the final draft NRC.
The national executive meet reassures every genuine Indian citizen that none of them shall be left out when the final NRC is published. “We shall also take steps to protect the interests of the minorities in our neighbourhood who come to India seeking refuge. The National Executive compliments Modi government for its determination in weeding out the infiltrators, whether they are Bangladeshis or Rohingya,” the resolution said.
Party’s political resolution also talked about internal security in northeast.
“Internal security situation has drastically improved. The North East remained largely peaceful, with six out of eight states electing BJP and NEDA governments. Accord with underground Naga groups is on the cards paving way for lasting peace in the region,” the resolution said.
Significantly, the political resolution took an example from Mizoram to talk about the success story of Modi government’s digital India campaign.
“Today, as we are deliberating on the ways leading to this New India, a middle-aged, not-so-well-educated farmer, in a remote corner of the state of Mizoram is proudly announcing, the record production of mushrooms in his farm, using new scientific agricultural practices. It is this golden moment when our India is exploring new, multi-dimensional agricultural techniques to double the income of its farmers,” the resolution said.
The national executive meet of the BJP expressed its gratitude and compliment to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his vision of building a New India by 2022, “when our country celebrates 75 years of its Independence.”
“This New India will be free from hunger, homelessness and joblessness; this will be an India – united, strong, prosperous and confident. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi is committed and leading to develop a New India, which will not have any place for poverty, homelessness, terrorism, corruption, casteism and sectarianism,” the resolution said.
