#NRCAssam It's surprising (actually it isn't) to see a tome of opinion seeking to justify illegal migration into Assam. Isn't Assam a part of India? Illegal migration into Assam impllies illegal migration into India too (1/n)
There was an obnoxious piece of legislation Illegal Migrants (Determination by Tribunals) Act enacted in the 1980s. The name of law itself --Illegal Migrants-- recgonised the enormity of the problem more than three decades ago (2/n)

I heard @AmitShah say those not on #NRCAssam are ‘ghuspaith’ or infiltrators. My cousin a top Guwahti doctor , her mother, my uncle in Tezpur are all now branded that?? This despite giving all papers. What mental torture
They are of course Bengalis and not assamese. Is that the issue?
All those saying just produce papers, those not on list HAD shown papers!! My family is sick of being pushed around. Some left assam when ulfa threats happened, will that happen again? #NRC

A man has 4 sons, one is living a luxurious life, well educated, well dressed, has enough money and resources for his coming generations. Second son is doing okay in life, earns a stable amount, makes his ends meet. (1/5)
Third one can barely make his ends meet. He is uneducated, poor and earns just enough for one meal.
Fourth son is so poor that he can't even afford basic necessities in life. If he is not supported now, he'll anyway die. #NRCForSecureIndia (2/5)
In this situation, is it okay for the father to adopt a fifth son?
Will it be fair for the other kids, who are his prime responsibility?
Will it be okay to give his kids share of resources to someone he is not even obliged to? (3/5)
