Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb said in Nagpur on Tuesday that everyone in the State had valid papers and there was no demand for a citizens register on the lines of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam.
He also expressed the confidence that his counterpart in Assam would be able to handle the situation after the NRC final draft's release on July 30.
Around 40.07 lakh applicants did not find a place in the historic document, touted to be a proof of Assamese identity.
Mr. Deb was in Nagpur to meet Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat. The meeting lasted an hour.
“Everything is in order in Tripura and everyone has valid papers. Hence, it is not an issue for us. I don’t feel it is even a sensitive issue in Assam and its Chief Minister is capable of handling the situation,” the BJP leader told reporters.
Some people in politics having “foreign mindset” were trying to vitiate the atmosphere, he alleged.
Asked about his visit to the RSS headquarters, he said, “Every swayamsevak has the admiration and curiosity for Nagpur and I have come to seek the blessings of the Sarsanghchalak.”
Earlier in the day, Mr. Deb visited the memorial of RSS founder K.B. Hedgewar and paid tributes.
