Kolkata: Harshly criticising TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee, BJP president Amit Shah
said that Mamata opposed the Assam NRC for ‘vote-bank politics’. He called upon the people of the state to uproot the TMC government, saying it patronised infiltration from Bangladesh as well as corruption.
Shah questioned Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Mamata to clarify their stand on infiltration from Bangladesh and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).
Addressing the rally at Mayo road, Shah began his speech with the slogan of uprooting the TMC government from Bengal and said in order to do that, he would visit all the districts of the state.
“Why do you want to keep the Bangladeshi infiltrators?” Shah asked Banerjee, and said she was against the NRC for “vote-bank politics”.
He alleged that the Bangladeshi infiltrators were a vote bank of the previous Communist government and now, they had become a vote bank of the TMC.
“Rahul Gandhi and Mamata didi should clarify whether national security is important for them or the vote bank. For the BJP, the country comes first,” Shah said.
