Kolkata: Addressing a press conference, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee
harshly criticised BJP president Amit Shah over the draft NRC list of Assam
published in 31st July.
Speaking from Nabanna, the state secretariat, Mamata said while attacking Amit Shah
that, “Do Amit Shah’s Father Have Certificate?”
Mamata Banerjee published a list of those who were excluded from the list. With proof, she pointed out those names which were excluded were there in 1971’s voter list.
She accused the ruling party at Assam and the BJP at Centre for publishing
such a list for political gains.The draft NRC Assam list was published on July 31 which excluded names of 40 lakh people. It brought a storm in the country’s political sphere.
However, the BJP demanded that there was no place for infiltrators in our country. All the illegal migrants will be sent back to their country. Those who have been staying in India, NRC list will have no effect on them. The BJP also said that all mistakes will be rectified in the final list.
