“NPR and NRC two sides of a coin”,says Asaduddin Owaisi

National Population Register (NPR) and National Register of Citizens (NRC) are two sides of a coin, AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi said.

His claim comes a day after Union Minister G Kishan Reddy had clarified that there was no link between the two. “Home Minister Amit Shah said there is no difference between NPR and NRC. I am telling you that NPR and NRC are two sides of a coin. The rules of NPR and NRC are the same. These rules have been made as per the Citizenship Act, 1955 in which NPR and NRC are there.. if NPR is done in this country, NRC would also be done,” Owaisi claimed.

He was addressing a protest meeting at Nizamabad on Friday night as part of his ongoing campaign against the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act, NRC and NPR.

He accused BJP leaders of spreading ‘false propaganda’ on television channels on the matter.

Referring to some BJP leaders’ reported comments that NPR exercise was conducted in 2010 as well by the then UPA government, he claimed that the difference between NPR of 2010 and 2020 was that questions would be asked on the birth place and date of birth of parents.

If the NDA government’s intention was clear, it would have conducted NPR and NRC first and then brought Citizenship Amendment Act, he said.
