Guwahati, December 31, 2018:
On the last day for registering the claims and objectives for those whose names were left out from the National Register of Citizens (NRC), State Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the number of registration of claims and objectives to be very less.
Addressing the media, Sarma said, “This is a personal matter but I personally believe that the number of claims and objectives is very less. We can see the awareness on registration of the claims and objectives of the NRC were not up to the mark as the government was also restricted to certain boundaries by the Supreme Court.”
“However, the other organizations should have created the awareness like they have created awareness on other issues. The border areas should have been focused more,” he added.
