A woman declares an Indian citizen 10 years after her son’s life
Following the order of the Silchar Foreign Court, Acol Lani Namasdra, who lives in the village of Haritikor in the Cachar district, has been recognized as an Indian citizen.
The court, in that order, states: According to the law, related to the period prior to January 1, 1966 … Namasdra is an Indian citizen and she is not a foreigner. ”
Arjun Namasdra, the son of a woman in her eighties, committed suicide in 2012 due to anxiety after he and his sister Anjali Roy were notified by a foreign court. During the 2014 Lok Sabha election campaign, the BJP raised Arjun’s suicide issue.
BJP’s then-prime minister candidate Narendra Modi mentioned the tragedy while addressing a rally in the Kacha district on February 23, 2014. Later, BJP leaders, including former Prime Minister Salvananda Sonoir, visited the murdered Arjun’s house and began to support his family.
Akol Rani Namasudhra’s citizenship was first questioned by the Assam police border guard 22 years ago, but she was not officially aware of the move. On February 23, this year, the Silchar Foreign Court issued a notice requesting Akol Rani Namasudhra to prove Indian citizenship. Akol Rani’s daughter, Anjali Roy, won a similar incident in 2012 after her brother Arjun committed suicide. In 2013, Arjun was also declared an Indian citizen.
According to court officials, Akol Rani Namasudhra submitted a number of documents, including a list of elections in 1965, 1970, 1977, 1985, and subsequent years when various elections took place in Assam. (IANS)
