Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) has registered an FIR against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee at the Naharkatia police station in Dibrugarh district on Tuesday evening for her derogatory remarks on the Assam NRC (National Register of Citizens). Three BJYM activists – Jagdish Singh of Duliajan, Amulya Chengiari of Naharkatia and Mridul Kalita of Joypur have lodged the complaint against the CM as she is found to have made provocative statements which will lead to more unrest among the common people of Assam after the declaration of the final draft of the NRC on 30th of July.
Notably, the final draft of the NRC released on Monday, showed about 40 lakhs of people being omitted from the list and this has led Mamata Banerjee to make statements like “The NRC draft list has excluded many Bengalis. They are running a ‘Bengali evacuation’ drill.”
The second and final draft of the NRC, under direct monitoring of the Supreme Court released on Monday that out of 3,29,91,384 applicants 2,89, 83,677 persons are eligible while the names of 4,007,707 people are not included in it.
Earlier on Tuesday, Mamata Banerjee had also warned that there could be unrest as a result of the Assam NRC and said, “If it continues to be like this, don’t you think it will create a bloodwar?”
The Trinamool Congress chief also added that not only the Bengalis but other people like the minorities, the Hindus, minorities, and Biharis too are shunned from the final draft and where will those 40 lakh people go now. She further accused the ruling party by saying that the people who had once voted for the BJP are now made to suffer the outcome by being declared as refugees in their own country.
The FIR against the TMC supremo states that she is inciting ‘hate and tension’ among the communities existing in the north-eastern state and this clearly indicates her intention to derail the NRC process. Such offensive comments passed by a person in power may lead to havoc among the people.
