West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee on Monday reacted sharply on the exclusion of over 40 lakh names in Assam's draft National Register of Citizens (NRC), saying people with Aaadhar cards and passports are not in the list.

The names of his son and daughter too were missing from the NRC, which is being updated to detect illegal migrants in Assam.

While slamming the Centre over the final draft of Assam's NRC, Bengal CM added that her state will shelter all those people who were not mentioned in the list. Hindustan Times delivers the news across all social media platforms, on the web, and at your doorstep. He said that reasons for rejection of any person from the final draft would not be made public and would be intimated to the persons concerned personally.

The NRC will include the names of all Indian citizens who have been residing in Assam before March 25, 1971.

The tea-rich state of Assam has always been the center of social and communal tensions with locals campaigning against illegal immigrants, a fight that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Hindu nationalist-led government has championed. She has accused the BJP of using this stratagem for electoral gains, of turning people - Bengalis, Biharis, Hindus and Muslims - into refugees in their own country and of pursuing a policy of divide and rule.

# 11:19 am: 40 lakh names ineligible is a very high figure and very surprising. The first draft of the list was published on 1 January, listing 19m names. There are a lot of irregularities in the report.

"They will get adequate opportunities to file claims and objections pertaining to their rights", Sonowal wrote in a post on Twitter.

The Minister said: "There is no question of any coercive action against anyone".

Accusing the Centre of trying to forcibly evict 40 lakh people, she said, "It is a matter of grave concern".

Citizens left off the list will be able to appeal from August 30 to September 28, according to Sailesh, the registrar general of India, who goes by a single name.

The All Assam Students' Union (AASU) has also taken a special initiative to set up a 24-hour control room in order to help and inform people regarding the same.

Authorities in the state have previously said the citizenship test was crucial to protect ethnic Assamese, many of whom have demanded removal of outsiders they accuse of taking jobs and cornering resources in the state of 33 million. The updating process involved house-to-house verification that involved verification of the documents provided, verification of the family tree to ensure claims of parenthood and linkages are not false.
