As the Northeast is burning under the fire of Citizenship Bill, the Supreme Court today has rapped the Modi government for delaying the process of National Register for Citizenship (NRC).

Supreme Court, who has come down heavily on the Center has held that the government is not cooperating in the NRC process and it clearly seems that the MHA might be destroying the process of NRC and not completing it.

News agency ANI tweeted saying, “Supreme Court slams Ministry of Home Affiairs (MHA) saying it doesn’t want the NRC to carry on and every time it comes up with different stories to destroy this process.”

The apex court has said that the fallout is happening because the Ministry of Home Affairs has not started the 2nd round of maintaining and implementing the NRC in Assam. “Better to exclude genuine person than to include a wrongful person.”

Reiterating the July 31 deadline, the Supreme Court has said that the date will not be extended and it is up to the government to finish the implementation of the NRC project.

The top court rapped Ministry of Home Affairs for its plea seeking to stall the NRC work for two weeks keeping in mind the role of Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) in the election duty,” as reported in India TV.
