Amit Shah attacks Mamata, Rahul on NRC issue

Written by PaperDabba

BJP president Amit Shah today said West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee opposed the NRC in Assam due to “vote-bank politics” and called upon the people of the state to uproot the TMC government, saying it patronised infiltration from Bangladesh as well as corruption.

He also asked Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief Banerjee to clarify their stand on infiltration from Bangladesh and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).

Addressing a well-attended public rally here, the BJP chief 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.

Black flags greet BJP chief

Amit Shah was today shown black flags by youth Congress workers when he came out of the NSC Bose International airport here to attend a rally in central part of the city, the police said.

The youth Congress workers showed black flags and raised anti-Modi and anti-Shah slogans as the BJP national president stepped out of the airport. They also tried to block his convoy by lining up motorcycles on the street, but police removed them.

Earlier, Shah was received by state party-in charge Kailash Vijayvargiya and state party president Dilip Ghosh. Some party supporters also welcomed him with dance and music and demanded NRC update in West Bengal.
