Four mil­lion told to prove na­tion­al­ity

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - WORLD NEWS -

In­dia has re­leased a fi­nal draft of a list of its cit­i­zens in the north­east­ern state of As­sam, leav­ing some four mil­lion peo­ple to prove their In­dian na­tion­al­ity. It says hun­dreds of thou­sands of peo­ple have il­le­gally en­tered the coun­try from Bangladesh over decades and set­tled down in the north east. Bangladesh re­jects the claim. The ap­pli­ca­tion process for in­clu­sion in In­dia’s na­tional reg­is­ter started in 2015.
