Sources from chennai stated that DMK president M K stalin on sunday urged the AIADMK government to not allow the National population Register drive in tamilnadu, saying any move to go ahead with it would invite "stern opposition" from the people. Meanwhile he also renewed DMK's demand for an anti-CAA resolution in the state assembly and said only such a move would be an "atonement" for supporting the Citizenship Amendment Bill in Parliament.
Furthermore writing to party cadres, stalin said the AIADMK government should not allow the National population Register exercise in tamilnadu under any circumstances. He said "If the government attempted to do it to fulfil the objective of the bjp government at the Centre, I would like to caution that it will invite strong opposition from the people". Further he urged the government to take steps for passing the resolution against citizenship amendment act during the budget session, commencing on february 14.
Moreover according to the home Ministry, the NPR is a register of usual residents of the country. A usual resident is defined for the purposes of NPR as a person who has resided in a local area for the past six months or more or a person who intends to reside in that area for the next six months or more. Perhaps it's objective is to create a comprehensive identity database of every usual resident in the country. The database would contain demographic as well as biometric particulars.
