Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel, on Tuesday, said that he is against the implementation of the National Register for Citizen (NRC) in the state, even if the Centre imposes it nationwide.

Speaking to ABP News in its flagship summit Shikhar Sammelan, Baghel, said “I announce that I will not sign the papers if they try to implement the NRC across the nation.”

When asked how the state will deny implementing the law which falls under the Central legislation, Baghel said that the law is against the core values of the Constitution. “Those who will not be able to prove their citizenship, where will they go?”

“The entire country, specially the North-East is burning after the Citizenship Amendment Act has come into existence,” Baghel said, slamming the contentious law which was passed by the Parliament last week.
