Where will they go?
Like all apologists of the NRC, the column, When numbers betray reality in Assam, (KT, Sept 5) says that Assamese just want to save their homeland, but does not answer how. What are you going to do with those who will not make it to the NRC? No one is providing an answer to this and instead is treading down this dangerous path without providing a plan. All proponents of NRC say they are not satisfied with the list as it has excluded genuine citizens and included migrants. Not satisfied with this fiasco, it seems the ground is being prepared for further draconian exercises like religion-based discrimination aimed at harming a particular community.
