Congress alleges BJP says NRC draft 'conspiracy' of NDA govts at Centre, in Assam
Many residents of Tripura have matrimonial links with the people of Assam. They are also in trouble, the Congress leader said.
The Congress in Tripura has alleged that the BJP-led governments at the Centre and in Assam were involved in a "pre-planned conspiracy" to exclude 40 lakh people in the state from the draft National Register of Citizens (NRC).
"Genuine citizens with valid documents have been excluded only to drive them out of Assam. It's a pre-planned conspiracy of the Centre and Assam government. Those whose names do not figure in the draft NRC are mostly Bengali Muslims, Bengali Hindus, and Manipuris," Tripura Pradesh Congress chief Birajit Sinha told reporters here yesterday.
