No demand for citizen’s register in Tripura: CM

Nagpur, Jul 31 (PTI): | Publish Date: 8/1/2018 3:45:39 AM IST

Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb Tuesday said that there was no demand for a citizen’s register like the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in his state.

He said it is not even a sensitive issue in Assam, where the final draft of the NRC was published yesterday with over 2.89 crore names out of the total 3.29 crore applicants in the north-eastern state.

Deb, who visited Nagpur Tuesday to meet RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, said there was no demand for the NRC in Tripura. “Everything is in order in Tripura and everyone has valid papers. Hence, it is not an issue for us,” said Deb.

“I don’t feel it is even a sensitive issue in Assam and its chief minister is capable of handling the situation,” he said to a query. Some people in politics having “foreign mindset” were trying to vitiate the atmosphere, Deb alleged. The NRC contains names of Indian citizens of Assam.
