NRC in Tripura only with state's consent, no imposition, CM

By Our Correspondent

Agartala September 12 ,2019 : The contentious National Register of Citizens (NRC) which has created nationwide ripples after being launched in Assam can be prepared and implemented in Tripura only with the consent of the state government. Stating this to media persons the  chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb said that the provisions for NRC was included in an act of parliament passed by parliament only for the state of Assam in 1950 , so if it has to extended to the entire country encompassing all states the consent of all concerned states have to be taken and a separate act has to be passed. This was made clear by the chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb in an interaction with the media . 

But the regional IPFT , a partner of the ruling coalition, is unequivocal on the issue : next to Assam, Tripura urgently needs to have NRC to protect the vital interests of its 'sons of the soil'. The minister for tribal welfare Mebar Kumar Jamatya said that NRC is a must for Tripura to safeguard the interests of the 'sons of the soil' because of ceaseless infiltration from across the border has been striking at the very root of tribal existence. 'Those who are legally residents of Tripura have right to stay on here but what about the illegal infiltrators who crossed over into  the state after 25th March 1971 and have been sharing the benefits meant for sons of the soil or legal residents ; this can not go on' said Mebar. He added that IPFT has already raised the demand for NRC in Tripura in the course of discussion with the union home minister. 

He added that union home minister has assured the northeastern states that the citizenship amendment bill will not be passed and implemented without prior consent of the states of the region.This is OK but the NRC should be implemented immediately to protect the interests of the northeast region from infiltration by Bangladeshi nationals, said Mebar.
