The AMU teachers association rejects the NRC amendment bill and the citizen urges the president to reconsider
AGRA: The Association of Teachers (AMUTA) flatly rejected the National Citizens Registration Law Project (NRC) and the Citizenship Amendment and urged the President of India to reconsider it with thorough deliberations with all sectors of society.
The general body of AMUTA at its meeting on Saturday resolved that there are several discrepancies in the final draft of the NRC and, therefore, this cannot be accepted in its current form. It is a unilateral decision and other political parties, and citizens of the country should be consulted on this separately, said AMUTA members.
The WBG further resolved that, since our great nation already has a strong Constitution and laws that are capable of satisfying all needs, no one should attempt to undermine their holiness and force changes for created political reasons. This is evident from the fact that the nation already has strict laws such as the Foreigners Act of 1946 and the Passport Act of 1920, as well as courts to detect, detain and deport all illegal immigrants residing in the country.
Therefore, the highly publicized bogey of illegal uncontrolled migration is very easily covered by the existing laws of the nation.
According to the secretary of AMUTA, Professor Najmul Islam, NRC is being promulgated with a political motive. In addition, the fear that the NRC will target the largest minority community in the nation must be addressed and resolved before the exercise.
He said that the way in which the poor and the illiterate, and the migrants, will prove their citizenship is a matter of grave concern. The truth is that the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) is a branch of the NRC exercise that has caused many difficulties for people, said Islam.
A resolution passed by AMUTA on the NRC and the citizenship bill also stated that the complexities of the bill cannot be seen from an angle, since the bill seems to have little protection for the larger minority community in In general, as well as for the poor citizens of the country it lacks the relevant planned documents.
In addition, it was resolved that the citizenship amendment bill should be subject to more reasoning and deliberation by lawmakers who elaborate the Law, and must think deeply about the consequences of their zeal to legislate, since it can culminate in multiple untold miseries about people.
