Wife of former senior bureaucrat not in NRC
NRC tops agenda at RSS mega meet
Guwahati: The former additional deputy commissioner of Morigaon district, Durgesh Ranjan Dey, has one question in his mind — why should his wife appear before the foreigner’s tribunal for not having her name in the final National Register of Citizens (NRC) when she is not even a suspected foreigner?
Eighty-year-old Dey, a resident of Jagiroad in Morigaon, said the names of his son, daughter and daughter-in-law were included, but his wife Shikha (68), who is originally from Hooghly in Bengal, was excluded from the NRC.
“The documents related to my wife’s father legacy, her schooling in Tollygunge and other papers to establish that she is from West Bengal, were all submitted for inclusion. I don’t know why her name has been dropped. And why should she appear before the foreigner’s tribunal when she is not even a suspected foreigner?’’ Dey wondered.
Dey, who also served as district election returning officer and electoral registration officer, said in the draft NRC only Dey’s name was included while other family members were left out.
