GUWAHATI, Jan 5: Expressing utter dismay over a responsible politician’s ‘commul’ remarks on the ongoing tiol Register of Citizens (NRC) update in Assam, the Patriotic People’s Front Assam (PPFA) has urged the politicians to exercise restraint while making any public statement.

The Assam-based forum, while reacting sharply to a recent outburst by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee claiming that the NRC updating process in the State was a ‘conspiracy to drive away Bengalis’, also appealed to the conscious people of the neighbouring State to prevent their talkative Chief Minister from making such inflammatory statements.

The much-awaited update of NRC of 1951 is undergoing in Assam following the directive (also monitoring) of the Supreme Court and the first draft of it comprising 1.9 crore applicants out of around 3.25 crore total applicants was released on the midnight of December 31, 2017. The second part of it is expected to be published by early this year.

Contrary to the widespread apprehensions by various government and non-government agencies, no unpleasant incident took place in Assam in the last four days, even though many people, including a few high profile individuals, are yet to find their mes in the draft. Rather everyone reportedly accepted the error sportingly and waits for necessary correction in the fil NRC.

“But shockingly West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has tried to commulize the issue with queer logics. The Trimool Congress chief has simply tried to play a cunning game as a few Bengali politicians of yesteryears, including Jyoti Basu (ex-CM of Bengal) along with a bunch of intellectuals, did the same during the Assam movement to deport illegal Bangladeshi migrants,” said the PPFA.

In a statement, issued to the media outlets, the forum pointed out that the appeasement policies of Banerjee towards a particular community in West Bengal has seemingly compelled her to make such illogical comments. As she has been vehemently opposing the Centre’s Citizenship Amendment Bill one can easily get the idea of Ms Banerjee’s interested group of people, asserted the forum.

The PPFA has filly urged the Bengal Chief Minister to think about the tion first than running behind her silly political interest. The forum also appeals to the Bengali-speaking people of the region to denounce Ms Banerjee’s comment which may spread misinformation and confusions across the country.
