    Himanta Takes A Jibe At Mamata Banerjee, Says Trying To Redefine Citizenship

    Mamata Banerjee on March 3, 2020, said all those who came to India from Bangladesh and voted in elections are citizens and don’t need to apply afresh for citizenship

    Assam Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is trying to redefine the citizenship clause enshrined in the Constitution of India.

    Speaking to the media persons, the minister said, “I think next time she will not campaign in West Bengal but Bangladesh. She stands for Bangladeshi infiltrators.”

    Banerjee on March 3rd, 2020, said all those who came to India from Bangladesh and voted in elections are citizens and don’t need to apply afresh for citizenship.

    “Those who have come to India from Bangladesh are all Indian citizens, they have citizenship. Where is the need to give new citizenship? They have been voting in one election after another… electing Prime Ministers and Chief Ministers and then it is said they are not citizens…no need to believe them,” Banerjee said at a rally at Kaliaganj in the Uttar Dinajpur district.

    She had further said she will not allow even one person to be driven out of Bengal. “None of the refugees living in the State will lose their citizenship,” she added.
