The Supreme Court on Tuesday slammed Centre over the Assam National Register of Citizens (NRC) process and said it seemed that entire effort of MHA was to destroy NRC process. The apex court said Centre was hell bent on not allowing work to continue. 
 
The top court rapped Ministry of Home Affairs for its plea seeking to stall the NRC work for two weeks keeping in mind the role of Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) in the election duty.
 
Reiterating that July 31 deadline for the completion of NRC exercise will not be extended, a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said the Centre is not cooperating in the NRC process and it seems the entire effort of the MHA is to destroy the NRC process.
 
The apex court asked the Election Commission to consider exempting certain state officers from election duty to ensure that NRC process continues.
