The Complete Draft NRC with his photo states Paresh Baruah's birthplace as Chakalibhoria village (also known as Jeraigaon) in the Chabua area of upper Assam's Dibrugarh district and date of birth as February 15, 1957, the brother said.

Hours after the Rajya Sabha was disrupted over the NRC issue, Shah held a press conference in the national capital and declared that the over 40 lakh people left out of the NRC were illegal Bangladeshi infiltrators and were liable to be ousted from the country.

"No genuine Indian citizens need to worry as there will be ample opportunities given to them to enlist their names in the final list", he said in Assam's biggest city Guwahati.

Allegations of illegal movement of people from India's porous border with Bangladesh have triggered sectarian tensions between the state's indigenous population and Bengali-speaking Muslims.

Accusing the BJP-run central government of trying to divide the people, she said, "The NRC has been drawn up with a political motive".

The final list, released on Monday, left out almost 40 lakh people, incorporating names of 2.89 crore people out of 3.29 crore applicants.

Sharma said that since Monday, the Opposition has been demanding a structured debate on the developments after the release of the draft National Register of Citizens.

Tesla shares rise despite biggest quarterly loss yet
Tesla also said it's working on a new version of its Autopilot semi-autonomous software that will have greater safety features. The company has yet to turn a profit but this quarter's loss is more than twice as high as in the second quarter past year .

Earlier, the issue of publication of second and final draft of National Register of Citizens in Assam continued to send political temperatures soaring for a second consecutive day on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, TMC leader Sukhendu Sekhar Roy said excluding 40 lakh people from the list would have serious ramifications on the demography of different states adjoining Assam. "During the process of claims and appeals, the state government should ensure that the people excluded from the NRC are not deprived of any government services, nor targeted or stigmatized in any manner", he said.

But activists say the NRC is now being used as a pretext for a two-pronged attack - by Hindu nationalists and Assamese hardliners - on the state's Bengali community, a large portion of whom are Muslims.

They say that a lengthy appeal process will be available to all - even if it means millions of families will live in limbo until they get a final decision on their legal status. NRC is key for security of the people of the country and its citizens. "The Home Minister is ready to respond", Naidu said.

Union Minister of Home Affairs Rajnath Singh ascribes the NRC process to the supervision of the Supreme Court, he said, alleging that Shah "falsified" the statement his home minister made in Parliament by "lame-duck credit seeking for implementing NRC". He said, "There is no question of reference to Foreigners Tribunal or taking to detention camp on the basis of non-inclusion of name in draft NRC".

Sailesh did not provide a breakup of people who had failed to make to the draft list.

Reuters notes, "Critics see the citizenship test as another measure supported by Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) aimed at minority Muslims".
