Expressing relief over the newly released NRC final draft, the president of All Assam Students Union Dr.Sammujjal Bhattacharya said, “It is sheer hard work and 38 years long struggle of the martyrs, who fought for an illegal migrant free Assam and their struggle finally paid off today”.
Dr.Bhattachrya also said, “It is only the first step towards an illegal migrant free Assam and still a lot has to be done in terms of warding off all the illegal immigrants from the state”.
He urged the government of Assam to seal the Indo Bangladesh borders and sign a bilateral treaty to ensure that no further influx of illegal migrants could take place in the country. Dr. Bhattacharya also appealed the people of Assam through Guwahati Times to cooperate throughout the process of NRC regarding claims and objection for the greater interest of public.
