‘No one should panic’: Assam CM Sonowal ahead of final NRC publication

Sonowal also said the exclusion of anyone’s name does not mean that he or she has become a foreigner as such a decision can be taken only by a tribunal after following the proper legal process.

Guwahati, August 30, 2019: Ahead of the publication of final NRC, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Friday asked people not to panic and said the state government will take all possible steps to help genuine Indians prove their citizenship and provide legal assistance.

Sonowal also said exclusion of anyone’s name from the final list of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) to be published on Saturday, does not mean that he or she has become a foreigner as such a decision can be taken only by a Foreigners Tribunal (FTs) after following proper legal process.

“No one should be worried. No one should panic. Government is here to take care of everyone. Even those who will be excluded from the final list will get enough opportunity to prove their Indian citizenship,” he told PTI in an interview.
