After the release of NRC draft in Assam, even though opposition political parties have launched an attack, most of the country has supported it, and many states have demanded to issue NRC. One such state has demanded independence from the Bangladeshi infiltrators, where the Left has been ruled by the government for a long time and recently there has been the Government of the Bharatiya Janata Party.
We are talking about Tripura where the local people have demanded to issue NRC in the state. According to the news, a delegation led by Vijay Kumar Harkhwal, President of the Indian Nationalist Party (INPT) of Tripura met the Union Home Minister, Mr. Rajnath Singh in the North Block of the country’s capital, Delhi and requested the NRC to be implemented in the state. He claimed that the Home Minister assured the delegation that the Center would consider their demand.
Mr. Harkhwal said that he told the Home Minister that like in Assam, too many foreigners are living illegally in Tripura and they are being traced back to their country. The AAIPT had said just a few days ago that it is considering filing petition in the Supreme Court regarding this issue. It is notable that the Center has drafted the National Citizen Register in Assam. After finalizing this, the foreigners who are living illegally will be identified and sent back to their country.
