New Delhi: Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh on Monday said that National Register of Citizens (NRC) is needed in many states of the North-East. He added that Manipur Cabinet has already taken the decision to have NRC in the state and the government is planning to start the process soon. “We and many of the states in the north east need NRC. The Manipur government has already taken a decision in the cabinet to have NRC,” Manpur CM told the media on the sidelines of the NEDA conclave in Guwahati.
Singh stressed that the BJP-led government at the Centre has repeatedly maintained that no illegal immigrant will be allowed to stay anywhere in the country. “That is a very clear message,” he noted. The Manipur CM said that NRC exercise will be implemented in the state through the central government.
Earlier on Monday, Home Minister Amit Shah once again underlined the Centre’s commitment towards ensuring the safety and security of the country and said that no infiltrator would be allowed to stay anywhere in India.
