Thiruvananthapuram/UNI: CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury on Sunday urged people to say 'No' to National Population Register (NPR) and 'Yes' to Census.

"CENSUS YES – NPR NO. NPR –“We Shall Not Answer” (Jawaab Nahi Denge). For the NRC the answer will be “Hum Kaghaz Nahi Dhikayenge” (We shall not show Papers)," Yechury said in a tweet.

"The house to house campaign on NPR-NRC linkage will culminate on March 23 marking the martyrdom of our immortal martyrs – Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev and to join the efforts to realise Bhagat Singh’s vision of an exploitation-free, inclusive new India," he added.

The three-day CPI(M) Central Committee which concluded today, in a statement, also urged people to not answer any questions concerning the NPR when the enumerators come to their houses.

"These enumerators will have two sets of questions – one for the Census and one for the NPR. While the questions related to the Census may be answered, the questions related to the NPR must not be. CENSUS YES – NPR NO," the statement said.
