TDN World Desk: Home Minister Amit Shah assures in Rajya Sabha that people need not to panic. People don’t have to submit any documents on NPR.
On Thursday Shah tells Rajya sabha,”No document needs to be submitted. You can give whatever information you have and leave the other questions blank.”
Replying to a question posed by kapil Sibal that whether the “D” (doubtful) would be removed,the Home Minister answered:”Let me say, now that we are sitting face to face… support us now. I say it clearly: First, no document will be asked for NPR. Second, any information that you don’t have, you don’t have to share that. And third, I say it on the floor of Rajya Sabha as Home Minister, nobody will be marked D.”
After Home Minister’s oral assurance people still in worry regarding whether it would be implemented in words and spirit, truly.
Nadeem Khan, leader of United Against Hatesaid through social media that their fight against NPR will be on.To back his stand, Nadeem Khan said that during the abrogation of Article 370 Home Minister had said Omar Abdullah was free to come in Parliament while the reality was that at that time he was put under detention in his residence by the central forces.
Student activist Syed Azharuddin appealed to the government to scrap the NPR and follow the 2010 census this session as well.
The past record of Prime Minister Modi and BJP government bears similar allegations of not keeping promises, as well as not telling the truth.During the pick hours of anti-CAA movements PM Modi said there is no detention centre in the country, but it was not the case. During a BJP rally at Ramlial maidan PM Modi said that no discussion held on NRC, but people know that Home Minister Amit Shah had referred a number of time that NRC will be carried out nation-wide. Considering Modi-Shah duos’ past record of making contradictory and hazy statements people of the country need to be cautious. Can we simply believe Home Minister Amit Shah’s verbal statement unless it is made an obligation under law? The question is valid enough.
