Among those still missing in NRC, son of freedom fighter and Assam agitation participant

Forty years after he took part in the anti-foreigner Assam Agitation (1979-85), Pradeep Bordoloi now figures among the 42 lakh names that have failed to make it to the National Register of Citizen (NRC), the final list of which will be published on July 31. While more than 40 lakh names were not included in the final draft published last year, an additional of 1,02,462 names were dropped from another list published this June.
Bordoloi’s family, however, was excluded from the list ever since the first draft was published on the midnight of December 31 last year.
“I dedicated my life to the Assam Andolan. I was even put in the district jail for one week. We fought for a fair NRC — but is it not sad that today, I am the one suffering the most for it?” asks 62-year-old Bordoloi from his home in Charaibahi in Morigaon district.
The six-year-long Assam Agitation, spearheaded by the All Assam Students Union, culminated in the Assam Accord of 1985, which set the cut-off date for “legal” Indian citizens of Assam as March 24, 1971. It is on this date that a person’s inclusion in the NRC list is based on.
