After the final draft of the list was published, politicians and journalists shared the numbers in the social media. The Indian journalist @StuteeMishra tweeted: "#NRCAssam – Of the 18.104.22.1685 applicants, 22.214.171.1247 could be eligible for inclusion in the NRC's full draft, 40.070.708 people are not on the list."
The Asian news agency News International (ANI) quoted West Bengal's prime minister, Mamata Banerjee (@MamataOfficial) as saying, "There were people who #aadhaar cards and passports but still their names are not in the draft list Based on surnames too, is the government trying to forcefully evict it? "
At the Indian Parliament's monsoon session, opposition parties led by Congress today raised the issue of not taking in 4 million names. Numerous parties, including the Trinamool Congress and the Samajwadi Party, protested against the names that were to be included in the final draft. The opposition accuses the government of "intentionally" not including 4 million names to appease a particular section of society.

Tweep @peekeymon asked, "Is the Indian government trying to create a new refugee crisis? # 40LakhOutOfNRC"
While others pointed out blatant mistakes. @ SayaniSengupt15 tweeted: "The parents and children of a person are in NRC's final list, but not him. It's a joke … what's going on in #NRCAssam."
Many Twitter users also said it was hypocrisy that Indians expect citizenship after having worked as expats in countries abroad, but when it comes to Bengalis they were labeled as illegal and asked to leave.
@omairanas tweeted: "Indians in London and New York: We should get green cards and residency because we've been living here for over 5 years.
Indians to 4 million Indians in #Assam: You've been living here for 40 years but you are Bengali and foreigners, you should leave India immediately. "
Popular journalist Barkha Dutt (@BDUTT) has also posted on Twitter:" No expert on #NRCAssam, but let's say these were lakhs from Indians, who lived and worked for years in the US had suddenly been declared illegal, how would we react, quite differently, I suspect. "
The movement was labeled as unfair, many pledged support for those who were excluded from the list. Sushmita Dev (@sushmitadevmp), a member of parliament from Silchar, tweeted Assam: "The streets of Silchar, my constituency, were deserted yesterday, a situation like a situation, a Bengali dominated district." The silence speaks volumes, it is deafening for me. I and my supporters will support anyone who is expelled from the NRC, including the potential stateless persons who are human. "
ANI also quoted Bhatratiya Samajwadi's party leader Mayawati as saying," When people spend long time in Assam who did not provide proof of their nationality, does not mean that they should be thrown out of prison the country. #NRCAssam "
