As soon as the final National Register of Citizens (NRC) was published on 31 August 2019 at 10 AM on completion of the updating the NRC,1951 at all the local, tehsil & district level offices created for the purpose, controversy regarding its correctness set in and even some lawmakers openly came out criticizing the document.
More than 19 lakh people in Assam have been excluded from the final version. What about their citizenship status?
The short documentaries (two parts) made by The Quint focus on the grim issue of citizenship rights and questions the authenticity of the data collection and declaring some citizens as illegal and possible deportation to all such people.
The film will be followed by a discussion.
ALL ARE WELCOME!!!
