I am an Indian and so are my parents, who were born before 1971. But as in those days people were not much aware about proper documentation. Many aged people like them don’t have either birth certificates or any sort of land documents. Some people are/were uneducated, some were non government employees.
Are those facts their fault? Are these facts enough to denounce them as not Indian citizens? If that is the case, then the current ruling party has been voted to power in 2019 on the basis of such foreigner votes.
We, as Indians by Birth(as per the Constitution) do not want Indians to be stripped of their citizenship on the basis of mere documents that common and poor people cannot provide to prove that they have come to India before 1971 or 1951, whichever the cutoff year may be. It may also happen that valid citizens who for some reason are not able to produce such proofs are also demarcated as foreigners.
Hence, we have the following proposition:
THE CUT OFF YEAR FOR CITIZENSHIP SHOULD BE ATLEAST THE LATEST VOTING YEAR 2019 where Indian people spent their valuable vote to choose representatives of the Indian Government. This means that people who have voted the current government to power should automatically be considered valid Indian citizens. Else the validity of the elected government comes under question.
And if that cannot happen, NRC SHOULD NOT BE IMPLEMENTED ANYWHERE IN INDIA. .We demand for a cancellation of NRC.
