Three FIRs have been lodged against West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee for her controversial remarks on National Register of Citizen (NRC) at two police stations in Guwahati, Assam.
In a public gathering, Mamata Banerjee had said that Centre was conspiring to drive Bengalis from Assam.
The first FIR was lodged by Krishak Sramik Kalyan Parishad at Dispur police station in Guwahati.
Another FIR was lodged against Banerjee at Latasil police station in Guwahati today.
There were even protests against her remarks against the process that has been monitored and ordered by the Supreme Court of India.
“I’m lodging an FIR against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee at Dispur police station for the communal statement on Assam Accord and the ongoing updating process of National Register of Citizen (NRC) in Assam made by the West Bengal CM at a public meeting held in West Bengal yesterday,” Complainant Pradip Kalita, President of Krishak Sramik Kalyan Parishad said.
“Mamata Banerjee has disrespected the Supreme Court verdict. Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal had already said that stern action should be taken against those, who will make communal, controversial statement against the NRC,” he added.
Interestingly the entire process has been continuing since 2013 but Mamata Banerjee made a comment almost five years later when the first list has been released, Assam has a BJP government in state and panchayat elections are round the corner in Bengal.
