No place for NRC in Andhra Pradesh


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.
