Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy on Monday announced that his government was opposed to the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and would not implement it in the state. Addressing a public meeting after launching some developmental works here, the Chief Minister asserted that his government was against the NRC.
"After I landed here on Monday, several minority groups came to me and requested that I make a statement on NRC. I told them clearly that state government will not support it", the Chief Minister said.
He recalled that Deputy Chief Minister Amzath Basha had made a statement on the issue a few days ago.
He had discussed the issue with me before making that statement. I fully endorse that. The entire government is committed to it. We are against NRC and there is no question of supporting it, Jagan told the minorities.
