AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Thursday hit out at the NDA governments' plan to conduct NRC across the country, alleging that the exercise will reap little or no benefits while causing only hardships to people, especially minorities and "the weak".

Khoda pahaad, nikla chooha. Now BJP wants to disown it, but find one all over India," the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief tweeted.

Referring to the reports over the Assam government urging the Centre to scrap the updated NRC in the state, Owaisi mulled what could be the justification of conducting a similar exercise across India.

He also raised the issue of the practicality of conducting the exercise all over the country and the purpose it will serve.

"Modi wants all Indians to yet again stand in line, detaining undocumented Indians & leaving minorities & the weak at the mercy of babus. Nowhere in the world are people put through such hardship, he said.

Assam Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Wednesday said the state government has requested the Centre to reject the final updated National Register of Citizens (NRC) in the
state.

But, in the similar vein, Sarma, welcoming Union Home minister Amit Shah's statement in the Rajya Sabha that the NRC process will be carried out across India, said the state government is happy that the Centre has "listened to their heart" and that the exercise will begin after the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill has been passed.
