Bhubaneswa­r: The Union home min­istry has for­warded to the Regis­trar Gen­eral of In­dia a sug­ges­tion from Mo­hit Ag­gar­wal, the Orissa high court’s am­i­cus cu­riae in a case re­lat­ing to wet­land pro­tec­tion, seek­ing the cre­ation of a Na­tional Regis­ter of Cit­i­zens (NRC) in Odisha’s Ken­dra­pada dis­trict.

The move is be­ing seen as in­di­cat­ing the Cen­tre’s in­ten­tion to bring out an NRC in the dis­trict. “It is up to the Cen­tre to take a call,” a gov­ern­ment of­fi­cer said.
