Assam NRC final draft: Over 40 lakh people have been excluded from the final draft of Assam’s National Register of Citizens leading to a war of words between the BJP and the opposition. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee termed it a clear attack on Bengalis. “They are targeting not Hindus or Muslims, but Bengalis. This is a wrong decision and will affect everyone across the country—all castes, creed and community. I will try to meet the Home Minister,” she said. The opposition parties also attacked the government in Parliament and Home Minister tried to allay fears and said this is only a draft NRC. The final draft of Assam’s National Register of Citizens was released on Monday. The officials clarified that those left out of the final draft will not be branded as foreigners and no punitive action will be taken against them. The final NRC will be out in December 2018.
