News reports have appeared to the effect that a delegation of indigenous Nationalist Party of Tripura (INPT), after a meeting with Union Home Minister, has claimed that NRC is likely to be implemented in Tripura. These reports are absolutely incorrect and mischievous.
Union Home Minister met a delegation of INPT led by its President Bijoy Kumar Hrangkwawl on 4th October 2018 .However no assurance of any kind was given by Union Home Minister regarding implementation of NRC in the State of Tripura.
It is categorically asserted that no decision has been taken on the issue of NRC in Tripura.
The Centre made it clear on Friday that it has no plans to implement the National Register of Citizens in Tripura, after a similar exercise was carried out in Assam to identify illegal immigrants.
In a statement, the Home Ministry said a delegation of the Indigenous Nationalist Party of Tripura (INPT), led by its President Bijoy Kumar Hrangkhawl, met Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday but no assurance had been given to the team .
