YSRCP against NRC, NPR
YSRCP Leader and MP Mithun Reddy said that his party made it clear in the all-party meeting here on Thursday that it was against National Register of Citizens (NRC) and the National Population Register (NPR). He said that the YSRCP will stand in support of the Minorities and sought a debate on the issue in Parliament as the information sought in NPR was different than what was asked earlier.
Speaking to mediapersons here on Thursday, he said there was a sense of unease among the Minorities in the country after the Citizens Amendment Act was introduced in Parliament. “We will certainly oppose NRC and NPR if they were introduced by the Central Cabinet. We sought a debate on the issue to clear the insecure feeling among the Minorities,” he said.
Mithun Reddy said CAA Bill was introduced as an issue related to three other countries and added that way in which it was introduced and the way it is going to be implemented. He said Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has asked us to oppose anything that is against the wishes of the Minorities.
