Haridas Dutta made the statement after threadbare discussions by the executive committee members of the Forum today. Members participating in the discussion expressed their serious resentment at the contradictory and confusing statements. This has created a serious setback to the movement of democratic organizations against the NRC updation, the process and procedure being followed has been most complex and complicated.
Haridas Dutta has cautioned if this process for updation continues, it will push lakhs of citizens of the state to a state of total uncertainty. They might even lose citizenship and become stateless. The statements by the political leaders of different parties have been described as baseless and far from reality. He has called upon people of all classes to become vocal against these statements and participate in the movement launched by NSSC. He said decision has been taken to continue the agitation till the demands for simplification of the process are not met.
Accordingly, a 3 day mass protest has been planned beginning from June 16 before the head post offices of Silchar, Karimganj and Hailakandi. It has been decided that the people participating in the protest assembly on all the three days will sign on post cards with their 5 point charter of demands.
The people have been further asked to prepare themselves for the movement in protest against the stand of the Central Government. In order further to make the movement more purposeful, another protest demonstration has been planned on June 23, 25 and 27 before the revenue offices of the Central Government. It will be in the form of picketing. To reach the message right to the people and the Centre, it has also been decided to call total Barak bandh on July 10.
