NEW DELHI Amid uproar and unabated debate over the National Register of Citizen or NRC draft of Assam that seeks to comb out illegal immigrants from the state, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday said, No Indian citizen will be left out of the list.
I would like to repeat that its a draft and not final, everyone will get chance to appeal, the Home Minister told in the Rajya Sabha which has been witnessing protests and subsequent adjournments since Tuesday.
Ever since the draft list was released on Monday, the Opposition has been criticising the government over what it claimed was a political move to cut out Muslim voters ahead of key state elections and 2019 general election.
