Indian West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has accused the ruling BJP party of trying to turn legal citizens of the country into foreigners in the name of NRC and Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.
She said this while addressing a public rally at Barobisha area of Alipurduar district today.
She called Prime Minister Narendra Modi a liar as he has not fulfilled single promises he made in 2014 elections.
Mamata Banerjee said BJP has to be defeated in order to save the people of India.
India’s lower house passed legislation on January 8 that would grant citizenship to members of certain religious minorities but not Muslims, sparking protests in the country’s northeast.
The bill covers select groups including Hindus, Christians and Sikhs who moved from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan and were living in India for at least six years.
