Later during the evening, the JAC also submitted representation to Chief Minister, urging him to oppose the NRC. In their representation they emphasised that the proposed NRC was going to have a catastrophic impact on the lives of all citizens across the country.

The onus will be on individuals to prove that they are citizens of India.
