The BJP in Assam lashed out at the official overseeing the National Register of Citizens, a list to weed out illegal settlers, accusing him of working for "some vested interest" on Wednesday. Prateek Hajela, the coordinator for the National Register of Citizens or NRC, had told the Supreme Court on Tuesday that 27 per cent of the names in the draft NRC had been verified once again. Based on Mr Hajela's report, the top court turned down a request by the centre and Assam government to have up to 20 per cent of the names on the draft NRC, particularly in districts bordering Bangladesh, checked again.
