Assam National Register of Citizens list to be published Monday

NRC coordinator Prateek Hajela informed the Supreme Court that the claims and objections with regard to inclusion and exclusion in the NRC could be filed from 30 August to 28 September

"The NRC should not become a political tool to render stateless people who have been living in India for decades and have established strong links with the country", said Aakar Patel, Executive Director of Amnesty International India.

The people or their descendants whose names appeared in the NRC 1951, or in any of the electoral rolls up to March 24, 1971, or in any of the other recognised official documents issued up until midnight of the same period should be included in the final draft.

Addressing the media, the BJP chief said, "It is odd that everyone is talking about human rights of the illegal immigrant but no is talking about the human rights violation of the citizens of Assam".

Numerous state's Bengali community have lived in India for decades, crossing the border into Assam during the bloody Bangladesh (formerly East Pakistan) independence struggle in 1971.

The central government said that people who are not part of the NRC final draft would not be automatically declared foreigners.

Trump administration reveals plans to roll back vehicle fuel standards
The attorneys general, as well as a wide range of environmental groups, lashed out at the proposal introduced Thursday by the U.S. The administration's assertion that lighter, more fuel efficient cars are more unsafe has been disputed by transport experts.

The first list of the NRC process was released in December 31 a year ago, in which around 1.9 crore people out of the total applications of 3.29 crore people were included. The first draft of the list was published on 1 January, listing 19m names.

One of them is Nellie farmer Suban's son Nabi Hussain, 28, who said he has voted in two Indian elections but now fears arrests. Rahul Gandhi should tell the country what is the stand of his party on the issue of illegal immigrants from Bangladesh.

Elsewhere in the country's northern heartland, lynchings of Muslim cattle traders have risen under Modi in the country where many Hindus consider cows sacred, further deepening social divides.

33 million people live in the state and there are frequent clashes between the majority, ethnic groups and the separatist guerrilla naxalite (a term used to indicate the Indian Maoist communists).

The Assam Accord, which was signed between the government and the protesters, was able to bring a consensus on the eligibility criteria for citizenship.

Iran MPs summon Rouhani as USA pressure squeezes economy
In May the United States left the deal which curbed Iran's nuclear activities in return for the lifting of worldwide sanctions . Rouhani recently warned the USA that "war with Iran is the mother of all wars ", prompting an all-caps retort from Trump.

Large number of Bengali speaking Muslim has been left out of NRC list.

While Modi and his BJP government plan to remove those they deem "foreigners" from Assam state, local officials are assuring those recently designated as foreigners will not be immediately deported. He also allayed fears among a section of people, insisting "there is no need to panic as it is not the final NRC". But the NRC told India's top court this month that it would drop 150,000 people from that list - a third of them married women - mainly because they had provided false information or inadmissible documents. "The Home Minister is ready to respond", Naidu said.

It asked Centre to formulate modalities and Standard Operating Procedures, including timelines for deciding the claims and objections arising out of the publication of the draft NRC.

Status quo will be observed and no punitive action will be taken based on the draft NRC, he said.

Meanwhile, the police and security forces have geared up to tackle any possible law and order breakdown in the aftermath of the NRC publication.
