SHILLONG, Aug 05: While AASU Chairman Samujjal Bhatacharya on Sunday warned the political parties to refrain from politicising the NRC issue stating that there is a propaganda going on initiated by political parties on the issue of NRC, NESO Chairman Samuel Jyrwa resounded the bugle on the pending demand for introducing NRC like exercise in all the North Eastern states.
“ Some people are trying to give it colour and there is propaganda going on and it is initiated by political leaders of the country who are not showing their commitment to the country,” said Bhatacharya further cautioning the political parties, “We warn the politiclal parties not to politicise the issue as NRC is the way to having a permanent solution”.
Taking a dig at West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee, Bhatacharya said, “We have seen the activities of West Bengal CM, other leaders and parliament and we would like to tell the leaders that India, Assam and the North East is not a dumping ground of illegal Bangladeshis”.
Bhatachrya further urged the government to discuss the foreigner issue in the parliament seriously while cautioning Banerjee that they will face the same problem.
“Learn the lesson from Assam and safe your own state first from the unabated influx,” said Bhatacharya.
Meanwhile, NESO chairman Samuel Jyrwa said that NRC for the entire NE region is the solution to tackle influx and NESO had already had discussions with the student bodies of all the north eastern states on this and they take it forward with their respective government.
Joining in sharing the same sentiments, Bhatacharya said, “We want NRC in the entire North East, but the modalities will vary while the nomenclature will be the same”.
