The BJP released a video footage on Wednesday showing Congress’ interim president Sonia Gandhi getting enumerated under the NPR in 2011. The Congress now alleges that the BJP aims to link NPR and NRC terming is “draconian”.
The opposition was quick to protest the decision by the Union Cabinet which approved over Rs 3,900 crore for National Population Register (NPR).
The opposition has been fanning violence and putting out a false narrative on various issues such as the NRC as well as the newly amended citizenship law.
Speaking of NPR, did you know that in 2011, the then Congress president Sonia Gandhi got enumerated under the population census? It was also used back then for the first time to prepare a National Population Register.
It must also be noted here that the first person to be enumerated in 2011 for the NPR was then President of India, Pratiba Patil.
Take a look at this video:
