‘NRC is a Game, No Political Party Wants it’: Ex-CJI Ranjan Gogoi

Gogoi said all political parties make use of the NRC issue for their benefit.

The National Register of Citizens (NRC) is a ‘game’ played by political parties, former Chief Justice of India and Rajya Sabha MP Ranjan Gogoi said on Thursday.

Speaking at the India Today Conclave East 2021 in Kolkata, Gogoi said all political parties make use of the NRC issue for their benefit.

The Supreme Court under Ranjan Gogoi played an instrumental role in getting the NRC for Assam published.

On the issue of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which got mixed with the NRC in Assam, Ranjan Gogoi said, “As far as the CAA is concerned, Parliament in its wisdom has passed it and the people of Assam, my state, are agitated about it.

It has given rise to serious concerns in the minds of people because it is being seen as a threat to the existence of Assamese people.”
