Hitesh Dev Sarma Appointed as New NRC Coordinator
GUWAHATI: Assam government has appointed Hitesh Dev Sarma as the State coordinator of Assam NRC.
The announcement comes after the transfer of Prateek Hajela to Madhya Pradesh on deputation.
According to reports, this decision was taken due to security reasons.
According to a highly placed source in Dispur, “the bureaucrats are not that enthusiastic to take over the charge of the NRC coordinator.”
“The new NRC coordinator will not have much work to do as the final NRC list has already been prepared. On enquiring if the process is being affected by Hajela’s pipelined transfer, the source said that now there is not much work left. After the final list is published, the only work is the issuance of rejection letters to the 19,06,657 applicants whose names did not get published in the final list”, the source added.
