On the massive controversy over a new Assam citizen’s list that excludes 40 lakh people from the state, Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said that the draft released on Monday is not a final one yet. The list has the names of Assam people and their family who have been living in the state before 1972. Non- Assamese but Indian citizens living in the state have also been added to the list, provided they have proof. Like the identity proof or aadhar or any other ID proof. (rajnath byte) All genuine Indian citizens will be added to the list. And there will be no bias in preparing the list. said the Government. To counter that Ripon Bora a congress leader representing from Assam, said that many women’s names have been dropped because as they couldn’t produce linkage certificate. As there are many children in the list that were left out. Many children dont have birth certificate due to illiteracy, Bora claims. So it is clear that apart from failing to detect the illegal bangladeshi immigrats, administrative failure is also one of the vital issue why these 40 lakh citizens were excluded from the list. Rather than politicising such a sensitive issue, the opposition as well as the Government should take the responsibility of educating what NRC draft all about.

Even though in 2014 we saw BJP emerging as the single largest party with an absolute majority, 2019 is not going to be the same. By now, it has been very clear that BJP cannot repeat the 2014 results. On the other hand, Congress has actively been a part of the opposition fold. For both the parties, at this stage alliances are of core importance. Both the national parties know it very well that it may be impossible for them to sit in the government if they do not seek help from allies. And thus, before the model code of conduct kicks in, the parties need to find allies and seal the deal with them.
Congress and BJP both are in favour of tying up with regional parties in various states for the Lok Sabha election. but, in this regard, the BJP seems to have taken a lead over Congress pretty quickly. As of today, the party has finalised alliances in three states namely Bihar, Maharashtra and most recently in Tamil Nadu.
