Agartala: Pradyut Manikya, the head of the erstwhile Manikya dynasty in Tripura, has welcomed Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s announcement to implement the NRC on a nationwide basis, with the same cutoff due for the entire nation.
In a video which he has shared on his official Facebook page, Manikya says, “I welcome the decision, and all of India, including Tripura. The bonafide citizens should be getting the facilities instead of illegal. The NRC should not discriminate on the basis of caste, creed, religion or language.”
Manikya also urge the central government to implement a National Refugee policy to differentiate between refugees and illegal aliens. “The genuine refugees who are suffering, and the illegal immigrants can be differentiated then,” he clarified.
It may be mentioned here that earlier today, Amit Shah has once again reiterated his intention to implement an NRC on a nation-wide basis.
