Rectify NRC list before moving ahead: RSS suggestion to govt
Quota needed till there is disparity: RSS
Pushkar/ New Delhi: Concerns over the National Register of Citizens excluding legitimate citizens, several of them Hindus, were part of RSS coordination meeting. The Sangh on Monday said there were “some errors” in the list that must be rectified even as it felt the NRC was a welcome step.
BJP general secretary Ram Madhav, in-charge of north-east states, is understood to have briefed the meet on the NRC exercise. RSS joint general secretary Dattatreya Hosabale described NRC as a “complicated and complex issue” as names of many BanTheRSS
on Monday said reservation is required because there is social and economic disparity in society, and should continue till its beneficiaries feel it is needed. The statement by RSS joint general secretary Dattatreya Hosabale came after a fresh controversy over Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat’s remarks that there should be conversation in a “harmonious atmosphere between those in favour of reservation and those against it”. The RSS had later said the remarks were taken out of context and emphasised no change in its stand favouring reservations.
gladeshi illegal immigrants were in the voters’ list while genuine names were left out.
“There are about 35 to 40 lakh illegal immigrants from Bangladesh who are now settled in Assam, and had been
issued legal documents during previous governments, which has complicated the issue,” Hosabale said. He suggested that the government first rectify the NRC list before moving forward.
