#CAA hearing begins in the #SupremeCourt. Attorney General KK Venugopal starts by saying the Centre has prepared a preliminary affidavit that will be filed today. Sibal asks for a #Constitution Bench to which #CJI replies saying this might go to the larger bench

Sibal: NPR begins in April so some interim order could be issued..

Centre opposes it, saying arguments will have to be made if any interim plea has to be argued.

AM Singhvi cites UP example, says this is an irrevocable process.

CJI: We may ask them to issue some temporary permits for the time being.

AG: The law itself talks about taking back the citizenship in certain situation.

#CAA_NRC_Protest #म #मराठी
१) CAA आणि NRC जोडून पाहू नये असे सरकारी पक्षकार म्हणतात.
केंद्रीय गृहमंत्र्यांनी अनेकदा NRC येईल अशी विधाने केली आहेत ती अनावधानाने झाली आहेत?
आसाम मधील CAA NRC मध्ये १२ लाख हिंदूंना/गैर मुसलमानांना नागरिकता मिळेल?

२) जर NRC येणार नसेल तर

संसदेच्या संयुक्त सत्रात मा. राष्ट्रपतींनी NRC लवकरच लागू केली जाईल असे का म्हटले?
जर हे खरे असेल तर हा निर्णय विना CABINET च्या परवानगीने झाला का?
जर असेल तर याची चौकशी करून कॅबिनेट सचिवांची हकालपट्टी का नाही केली?

I encountered some genuine concerns about #CAA_NRC_NPR in many people's minds.

In a way misinformation spreads fast and in very lethal way, but I am certain that Government could not clarify the whole exercise in crystal clear manner, with unanimity and solidarity.
As I am reading, researching, watching from quite a while now, Explaining the actual scenario verbally or personally to a mass of people is not possible to me at this point, so taking this SM route to spread awareness.

I will link some govt sources here to avoid over explaining
Lets have step by step knowledge about these things. Lets start with #NPR as it is smaller and very straightforward thing!

Pure misinformation led #NPR getting connected with #CAA_NRC. It should be looked as a joint exercise with Census.

5 Questions

1. What was May doing in #NewDelhi when #demonetization was announced?
2. Why the event was sponsored by a bankrupt #CrownAgent firm blacklisted in India?
3. Who lifted the Ban & gave contract to #DeLaRue to print our notes?…
4. Why the same bankrupted & blacklisted (for colluding with Pakistan ) British #CrownAgent #DeLaRue bailed-out by #demonetization contract is illegally smuggling Biometrics of Indians captured during Pilot Project of #NPR #NRC?…
5. Why is there absolute silence on these questions by mainstream media which is obsessed with all things Pakistan?

By awarding #demonetization contract to the blacklisted #CrownAgent #DeLaRue, India's National Security has been compromised!…

Last evening, over a conversation with brother SanjayHegde, we concluded, #ModiSarkar is simply not interested in talking to the anti #CAA_NRC_NPR protesters & would prefer to wear them down .
In the meanwhile, affiliates will go full steam ahead with disinformation campaigns.
Hence, it is important to be clear about what the #CAA_NRC_Protests are about.
The #CAA_NRCProtests aren't against granting citizenship to oppressed minorities of neighbouring countries.
Granting citizenship to those seeking refuge, is a welcome move.
Had #CAA2019 been religion neutral, there would have been no reason to oppose it.
But the intrusive nature of the planned #NPR & the stated plans of a nationwide #NRC with #CAA2019 in place as a enabling legislation, make the whole exercise suspect.

When every Indian is asked to prove his nationality and his claim to Citizenship on the basis of documents - not just his own but also of his parents - then the State will have total control - ownership almost - of every citizen's life and liberty.
My father was a graduate employed in the Railways. I dont have a birth certifcate, never mind my late parents. the earliest document I can produce is school leaving cert from the lid 60s - and that does not have my full name on it. I'd have to bribe my way into #NCR
The whole #NPR / #NCR process seems ripe for #Corruption and #venality on a massive scale. I know many #NRI's (foreign citizens with #OCI status) who have an #Aadhar while being ineligible for it because they are non-residents. With bribery you can get any document you want

#NPR is like FIR (First Information) report of #NRC
NPR will be for everyone, so saying that only Muslims will be affected is not true
In #Assam 75% of 19 lakh, who were excluded from the final list were non muslims

These 19 lakh failed to prove their Citizenship of India
Lets assume they all are illegal immigrants and they should be thrown out of India

But where can you throw them away?

They don't have proof of where they came from

Under which law can you send them to Pakistan,Bangladesh or Afghanistan?

There's no such law to deport them
What next?
Those who don't have any papers to prove their country of origin don't fall under 'Illegal Immigrant'

Who are they?
They are Stateless people

Whose responsibility are they?
They are responsibility of the State (Country) where they are identified, Food & Shelter

The National Population Register (NPR) is a Register of usual residents of the country.

NPR is being prepared at the local (Village/sub-Town), sub-District, District, State and National level under provisions of the Citizenship Act 1955 and the Citizenship (Registration of Citizens and issue of National Identity Cards) Rules, 2003.

The objective of the NPR is to create a comprehensive identity database of every usual resident in the country. The data for National Population Register was collected in 2010 along-with the house-listing phase of Census of India 2011.

Documents in possession of @GreatGameIndia reveal an insidious conspiracy to smuggle #biometric data collected under Pilot Project initiated under #NationalPopulationRegister to #Taiwan posing threat of identity theft & threat to India's #NationalSecurity.…
In connection with the creation of National Population Register, Department of Information Technology (DIT) setup various Information and Communication Technology enabled Common Service Centers (CSC) in different parts of the country for capturing biometric and demographic data.
During Pilot Project in 7 states, Himachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Meghalaya, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Orissa, #Smartmatic collected biometric and demographic data of approx 2 lakh Indians which was stored in machines used for data collection – the PARmobiles.

A frightening dilemma looms for India's minorities, especially her Muslims. It is the upcoming @Census2021India. @PrakashJavdekar has stated that it will be a chance both the enumerate the population AND to populate/update the National Population Register - #NPR. So? you may ask.
Well, here's the rub. The #NPR will be a register of #residents. The National Citizens register will draw on it to establish #Citizenship status on criteria yet to be announced, confirmed and clarified. The #Census and #NPR will be based at least on the foll. data set.
That was the data set used for @censusIndia2011. In the first instance the expectation is that the data will be honestly filled in and submitted via an app. (I heard @PrakashJavdekar say that in a #PresConference on @NDTV.) Here's the dilemma

Tuesday, Cabinet may approve budget of Rs 8754 crore for Census & updating #NationalPopulationRegister Objective of NPR, create comprehensive identity database of every usual resident in country, would contain demographic as well as biometric particulars. Kerala & WB stalled it.
In 2010 NPR, data collected on 15 points, did not include date & place of birth of parents, last place of residence, passport number, Aadhaar, PAN, DL number, Voter ID & Mobile number. 3 points of mother’s name, father’s name, name of spouse made into 1 point this time. #NPR

Doing a thread on #NPR

To understand NPR, we need to understand wars & migration. The idea NPR came after the war with kargil in 1999. Where pakistanis entered India in civil clothes and we couldn't identify them. #IndiaAgainstCAA #IndiaAgainstNRC
So after the kargil war, there was conference of all chief ministers on internal security on 17-11-2001. This is where the idea of Multi Purpose National Identity Card was proposed and the idea of National Population Registrar was born to identify citizens from aliens.
Then the office of the registrar general of India framed rules on how this will be done, the idea of bio-metrics to be collected was formulated as early as 2003. So #Aadhaar was not the first time private sector use of id or biometrics was thought of. They wanted 16 parameters

MHA seeks to clear air on the #CAA_NRC_Protests . Top MHA sources, "Assam NRC was diff because it was governed by Assam accord and had a cut off date of 1971. All India NRC will be under the Citizenship act where provisions of naturalisation, birth already protect citizens.
The fear is meaningless that Muslims will be en-mass thrown out. It is not possible under law." Top MHA officials.
.@HMOIndia on states refusing to implement #CAA . "Granting citizenship is the domain of center.
Under citizenship act collector was the nodal officer to take applications etc. Under CAA we have the legal provision for appointing a separate nodal officer.

Priyanka Gandhi & all student protests seem to be focused solely on #CAA. But #NRC is the bigger danger. Do people realize that? In 2018 INC boasted it had created NRC & had deported 82728 Bangladeshis whereas the BJP had deported only 1822. #CAA_NRC…
The #CAB is a decoy. It's a red herring - that was bound to cause #CAAProtests to errupt to draw attention away from #NRCBill. CAB is to NRC what the #Dataprotectionbill is to #Aadhaar. The real danger is from Aadhaar. Like it is from NRC. @Stupidosaur?
Explanation :The #CABBill does not specifically say it will not give citizenship to Muslim immigrants. If it does, the #CAA will straight away go to court as it's blatantly Unconstitutional. But the #NRC which is random, can easily target more Muslims if that's BJP govt's aim.

Replace "oligarchy" and "authoritarianism" with T-R-U-M-P and people might actually listen.
Cue all the folks who hate Bernie claiming that socialism is bad when at least half their daily lives are *stops to get mail and also remembers I'm on Internet* filled with small s socialism.
#Bernie is his own worst enemy with his incessant buzzwords.
The FACT is, we need Dem Socialism desperately as a modality, but the #GOP has so tainted the word "socialism" that people forget what it really means.

Our MOST socialist prez was #LBJ, who gave us the #VRA, #CRA, #Medicare, #Medicaid, #SNAP, #NEA, ##PBS, #NPR.'s doable.

People are slamming so-called fact checkers @NPR, @politico, for their overt bias in analyzing portions of President Trump’s #StateOfTheUnion speech.…
#NPR: The most egregious example was from @NPR, which provided a “fact check” of Trump’s statement praising the record-high number of women in Congress.

NPR responded to the statement by admitting it was completely true, but tried to inject partisanship into the equation.
#POLITICO: Despite @MSF_USA reporting in 2017 that 31% of female #migrants said they were sexually assaulted while traveling through #Mexico, @Politico rated the statement only “partly true.”

It was not made clear how the statement was only “partly true.”

#Khashoggi Case Thread: I am going to ‘pin’ this post to use it as an ‘Info Thread’ on the #Khashoggi Case. I am in #Turkey. I’ve been following the case closely and with access to sources & experts here. This is a very ‘sensitive’ criminal case due to ‘Diplomatic Booby Traps’!!!
The Evidence Obtained Outside Cameras will not show any evidence of ‘tempering’ but other than license plates of dozens of diplomatic cars (Many with tinted windows-large trunks) with related time stamp, drivers Info, model/year: Nothing.
#Turkish Intel-Investigative Bodies also have the list of all Diplomatic & Private Saudi & “other significant’ Planes in #Turkey for the period of ‘interest.’ Many of the Target airports have their own security cameras & related evidence.
