Then only we will decide. "NRC is trying to finish us off. Our people have died here, but we will not leave this place". He survived by running as hard as he could and hiding behind a bush for days. Almost all were Muslim, and many were children. Modi has at least twice publicly spoken out against cow vigilantes. Security has been tightened across Assam. The mammoth three-year-long exercise to prove the identities of 33 million people across the hills, valleys and plains of this verdant state began two years ago.

After the first draft was introduced on Tuesday (July 31), the Congress has been up in arms after it was found that the NRC would make almost 40 lakh people in Assam illegal.

Trinamool Congress members also sought to raise the issue.

However, the BJP has rubbished Opposition's allegations over NRC, saying that it is a positive step against illegal migrants.

"The BJP's approach to NRC has been weak, casual and ineffective", he said, adding that the list of exclusions would have many Indian citizens. "Our police and administration are not strict enough to follow up on these cases", he said.

Hundreds of thousands fled to India from Bangladesh during its 1971 war of independence from Pakistan. How many Bangladeshi infiltrators are there among these 40 lakh?

Citizens getting their documents verified at the National Register of Citizens (NRC).

Assam is the only Indian state to conduct a citizenship verification exercise on such a massive scale.

The company added however that robust demand for memory chips helped boost the operating profit. It predicts that OLED sales will rebound on recovering demand for flexible displays.

"The NRC is being done with a political motive".

Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister of West Bengal state, called the list part of the central government's "divide-and-rule policy" and said it would make people "refugees" in their own country, according to NDTV.

Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu said he had requested Home Minister Rajnath Singh to respond to queries on the National Register of Citizens, but the legislators continued to disrupt proceedings.

Rivals say that as Modi's government faces disillusionment for failing to deliver on jobs and prosperity, it will step up religious mobilization across the country.

TDP's parliamentary party leader and former Union Minister YS Chowdary launched a scathing attack on the government at Centre during a discussion on the draft of Assam's NRC in Rajya Sabha.

The country's Supreme Court which has been supervising the registration, had initially set June 30 as the deadline to publish the draft list.

Security has been tightened across the state, which borders Bangladesh, as thousands of Bengali-speaking Muslims worry about being sent to detention centres or deported, a witness said. The process, if required, can be also extended by another month, he said. Hence, there is no need for anyone to panic.

Hajela said that most of Assam's 126,000 so-called doubtful voters, and an estimated 150,000 of their descendants, would be excluded from the NRC in accordance with a court order. "No genuine Indian citizen should have any fear".
