Guwahati: The Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) leader Akhil Gogoi on Monday lambasted West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for her comments and statements over the publication of Final Draft of National Register of Citizens (NRC).
During the wake of the publication of Assam NRC final draft, the Peasant leader stated that the West Bengal Chief Minister is not aware of the actual situation that Assam is facing.
Venting his anger further on Mamata Banerjee, KMSS leader Akhil Gogoi further went on to say that she was just playing politics. “Mamata’s emotions are false. She is just playing politics,” he said.
Gogoi warned Mamata Banerjee that she should stay away from the affairs of Assam and must not interfere in the completion of the Final Draft of the Assam NRC process at any cost.
It may be mentioned that the West Bengal Chief Minister strongly criticized the NRC policy of the BJP government and said that it would create a major racial division among the people in the state. Mamta Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress has been voraciously condemning the NRC and has termed it as an “inhuman act”.
Earlier today, Trinamool MP from DumDum Sougata Roy had given an adjournment motion notice in the Lok Sabha soon after the NRC Final Draft was published in Guwahati.
Party Chief and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee later appealed to the Central Government to consider the NRC on humanitarian grounds.
“There are so many people there in the jail, including women. Please consider this case on humanitarian grounds. Does central government have any rehabilitation package for them? Divide and rule policy will finish the country. This government will never speak to us (Bengal and Bangladesh),” she said.
CM Banerjee further added, “Assam people are helpless and cannot connect with us also. This is not only Bengali speaking people, of course. There are so many Biharis. Will they not protest if they are tortured? I cannot contact Bangladesh as it is an external affairs situation and is not my matter. But I will raise the issue, which Bangladesh will also oppose. This is a wrong decision and will affect the entire country — all caste, creed, and community. If I get the opportunity, I will meet home minister Rajnath Singh.”
