No NRC in Bihar, Reiterates CM Nitish Kumar

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2020-02-24

Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar once again reiterated that the National Register of Citizens (NRC) will not be implemented in Bihar and only the National Population Register (NPR) would be updated the way it was done in 2010.


The Janata Dal (United) president had in December already made its stand clear that the NRC would not be implemented in the state, though the party supported the Centre’s Citizenship (Amendment) Act.


The CM lambasted the opposition and said, that people were being misled and diverted by the opposition in the name of CAA and NRC.


"I know the opposition will not succeed in misleading the minority people further as truth has started coming out. The opposition is also poking the minority people out of political interests," he alleged, adding that the interests of minority people are totally safe and protected in the NDA government.


He categorically stated also that even the NPR will not be implemented with its changed form.


"The NPR will be implemented in Bihar in its old form of 2010 without any new addition, which can cause either suspicion or confusion the people," he strongly said.


CM Nitish said this while addressing the people of minority sections in Darbhanga on Sunday, where he laid down foundation stones for various projects, worth Rs 100 crore for the minority people at the Maulana Azad Urdu University.


He further assured them by saying: "I am determined to open All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) and the airport. I have never compromised on development in Bihar...".


Earlier on January 13, the Bihar Chief Minister said that there is no question of implementing the NRC in the state and asserted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has clarified his stance on the proposed exercise.


"No question of NRC in Bihar. It was in discussions only in the context of Assam. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also clarified on it," Kumar had said in the state assembly, whose JD(U) is an ally of BJP.
