PATNA: Fresh differences have cropped up between two NDA partners—BJP and JD-U—in Bihar over the issue of implementing the National Register of Citizens (NRC).

DEMOGRAPHIC CHANGES IN BORDER REGION

“The speed with which population in the border districts, especially Katihar, Purnia and Kishaganj, has increased has brought demographic changes in the region. This is very worrying. NRC is a must in the region,” Sinha has tweeted.

He alleged a large number of Bangladeshi nationals have captured land, employment and business in the region while politicians indulged in vote-bank politics are rejecting it.
