40 lakh illegal immigrants in Assam

Setting off strong political debate... the National Register of Citizens has found at least 40 lakh people were pronounced as illegal immigrants. These people have to prove their citizenship between August 30 and September 28. Assam has been facing the problem of being flooded with migrants especially from the bordering Bangladesh. Over the decades these migrants have completely changed the demographics of the state. This has prompted the government to take up a National Register of Citizens to enrol the legal citizens. However it is not clear about the kind of action that would be taken against those migrants who were found illegal. It’s almost sure that their voting rights would be cancelled and they might be prompted to leave the country.
