In the wake of publication of the final draft NRC in Assam on July 30, the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) said it would carry out its phase-I exercise to prevent influx of illegal immigrants into Nagaland.
The federation on Tuesday said student volunteers would be assigned to verify documents of non-locals in order to segregate genuine Indian citizens from illegal immigrants.
It has directed the inner-line permit holders to carry documents like voter identity cards and Aadhaar cards.
The NSF said that those who cannot produce documents during the process of verification of ILP and other related documents, would be considered illegal immigrants.
It also cautioned that the defaulters would be handed over to the district administration and police for further legal procedures.
Meanwhile, the NSF has appealed to the district administration and law enforcing agencies to extend assistance and service as and when required by the student unions and their volunteers.
The NSF also requested the general public to extend cooperation to the student unions and volunteers.
