Guwahati: Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said the Supreme Court-monitored National Register of Citizens in Assam would have been a “correct NRC” had the full responsibility of its updation been given to the state government.
“The BJP wants a correct NRC.
If the Assam government had got full responsibility of the NRC upgrade work, then I can tell it with confidence that it would have been a correct NRC," he told the House.
"The Assam government only provided the service of 55,000 of its employees and the police force for the security purpose," he added.
Talking about the CAA, the chief minister said the people were protesting because misinformation regarding the Act was being fed to them.
