NRC update: some exclusions defy an explanation

The complete draft of the updated National Register of Citizens (NRC) has proved to be a great leveller, as it excluded people across the social spectrum — from daily-wagers and marginal farmers to soldiers and MLAs.
Among the 40,07,707 people dropped from the list allegedly for lack of proper documents were former President Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed’s nephew Ziauddin Ali Ahmed and his family.
Political parties such as All India United Democratic Front have attributed the exclusion of names of many genuine Indian citizens to parochial NRC officials besides vindictive police officials and Foreigners’ Tribunal members. “There are reports that documents have been rejected deliberately,” party leader Aminul Islam said.
