New Delhi, Sep 09 (ANI): Urging people to have no fret regarding the National Register of Citizens (NRC) draft, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday assured that no Indian national would be excluded from the list. “Every person living in North-East wants that there should be a list on who is a foreigner and who belongs to this country. That is why you have seen how Assam recently saw the NRC draft. There have been a few complaints regarding that too. But, whatever is happening is under the supervision of the Supreme Court,” Singh said at the Nest Fest. “I don’t want to talk in details about the problems, but I do want to assure you that whosoever is an Indian national will definitely be included in the NRC draft. Nobody should have any qualms regarding this,” he added. The first draft of NRC for Assam was released on the intervening night of December 31, 2017 and January 1, 2018 containing the name of 1.9 crore Assamese. The second and final draft, which was released on July 30, included names of 2.89 crore people, out of 3.29 crore applicants in Assam, leaving out names of nearly 40 lakh people.
