No documents needed for NPR, no one will be marked doubtful: Amit Shah in RS


Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday clarified that no citizens would be marked ‘doubtful’ and no documents would be asked for in NPR.

“I am again repeating that no documents will be needed for National Population Register (NPR). All the information asked is optional. Nobody has to fear from the process of NPR. There will be no ‘D’ (doubtful) category,” Shah said while replying to a discussion on the Delhi violence in the Rajya Sabha.

Speaking on Delhi violence, Shah vowed to punish those behind the Delhi riots, irrespective of their religion and party. “We won’t spare anybody, irrespective of whichever party or religion they belong to. We will set an example by punishing the rioters,” he said.

He further said that over 700 FIRs have been registered in Delhi violence, and 1922 people who could be seen spreading violence in various videos of the riots have already been identified. He added that the government will soon find out who funded the rioters.

Shah also talked about the newly-enacted Citizenship law and asserted that the Act is not to take anyone’s citizenship but to give citizenship.

“I reiterate to my Muslim brothers and sisters that false propaganda is being spread on the issue of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). This Act is not to take anyone’s citizenship but to give citizenship,” Shah said.
