No NRC In Odisha, Naveen Assures Muslim Delegation


Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Friday made it clear that he won’t allow the National Register of Citizens (NRC) to be implemented in Odisha.

The CM told this to a delegation of the Chauda Mahala Muslim Jamat from Bhadrak, Balasore and Jajpur districts at the Lok Seva Bhawan here. He said that while supporting the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill (CAB) in Parliament, BJD  had made it clear that the Bill will have nothing to do with NRC.

“The Chief Minister told us not to panic about the enactment of CAB and gave an assurance that the state government will safeguard our future,” a member of the delegation told the media later.
