Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday warned Centre on NRC adding it won’t be able to shut Bengal’s mouth like Assam.
Banerjee said the Centre won’t be able to shut Bengal’s mouth. Banerjee said those trying to divide the people in the name of NRC are playing with fire, adding that she would never allow the exercise to be conducted in her state.
Banerjee said people were still being asked to give proof of their identity after 76 years of independence.
“We will never allow NRC in Bengal. We will not allow them to divide the people on religious and caste lines. They have silenced the people of Assam by using police administration but they cannot silence Bengal”.
