Kolkata: Following the Bitter-War-of-Words between West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and the BJP leadership over the Publication of Complete Draft NRC in Assam on Monday, the BJP general secretary of West Bengal, Kailash Vijayvargiya lambasted CM Mamata Banerjee while saying that similar efforts must be made in West Bengal to make it free from illegal migrants.
BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya said today that there should be a similar effort in West Bengal to identify illegal migrants from Bangladesh. He also hinted at how National Register of Citizens (NRC) for West Bengal could be introduced and put into effective working manner so as to “identify illegal migrants from Bangladesh”.
According to media reports, Vijayvargiya claimed that the number of illegal migrants in West Bengal may cross whooping crores and that the young generation of boys and girls are facing several problems like unemployment and law and order issues because of illegal migrants in West Bengal.
“If the final draft (of the National Register of Citizens) in Assam found 40 lakh, illegal residents, the number could run into crores in West Bengal. In Assam, the Supreme Court has monitored it. This can be done in West Bengal too,” Vijayvargiya told the Media.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, after Publication of Complete Draft NRC in Assam on Monday, had stated that all 40 lakh people who failed to get their names listed under Assam’s NRC final draft will get shelter in her (West Bengal) state.
The Lok Sabha witnessed a heated debate on Monday, following the publication of Final Draft NRC in Assam, where more than 40 lakh applicants could not make it to the Complete Draft.
Earlier on Monday, the Trinamool Congress (TMC) had carried out a strong protest against the Assam NRC in the parliament. A ruckus led to the submission of adjournment motion Lok Sabha against the Final Draft NRC that left out 40 lakh people.
