Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray said that they will not be blocking the National Population Register (NPR) in Maharashtra. Thackeray said that he will “personally check the columns” in the NPR himself and there shouldn’t be any problems with the exercise in Maharashtra.
“CAA and NRC are different and NPR is different. No one should worry if CAA gets implemented. NRC is not there and will not be implemented in the State,” Thackeray tweeted.
He mentioned that there is nothing controversial about the NPR as it is a census and takes place every 10 years. No one will be affected by it.
Addressing the media at Sindhudurg, he further added that if NRC is implemented, not only Hindus and Muslims but also Adivasis will get affected.
