No need to panic, NRC is completely "Impartial": Rajnath Singh
The home minister's reaction came after the draft NRC was published today with the names of about 40 lakh residents of the state not being included.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said the draft National Register of Citizens for Assam is completely "impartial" and those whose names are not included shouldn't panic as they will get an opportunity to prove their Indian citizenship.
"No coercive action will be taken against anyone. Hence, there is no need for anyone to panic," he told reporters here.
Even someone whose name is not in the final list can approach the foreigner's tribunal, Singh said. "Some people are unnecessarily trying to create an atmosphere of fear. This is a completely impartial report. No misinformation should be spread. This is a draft and not the final list," he said.
