Silchar, April 16, 2019:

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national general secretary Ram Madhav on Tuesday announced that Assam's National Register of Citizens will be released in July end and predicted that the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill could also become reality by then.

"The National Register of Citizens (NRC) to be released in July end. Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, will also come by then. Once both of these come; issues relating to foreigners will be resolved", he was quoted as saying ahead of the election.

Both the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill and NRC continue to be pertinent issues in Assam, but the BJP leadership has remained steadfast in its resolve to implement the Bill despite opposition from many corners.

Constituents of the Silchar Lok Sabha Constituency will head to the polls during the second phase of polling on 18 April.
