NRC is a conspiracy to drive out Bengalis from Assam: Mamata Banerjee

Guwahati, January 3: In a significant development, CM of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee has reportedly alleged that the NRC is a conspiracy by the BJP Govt in Assam to drive out Bengalis from Assam.

The CM reportedly further warned that the Centre shouldn’t play with fire alleging that the Central Govt is planning to drive out around 1.80 Crore people from the state of Assam in the name of NRC.

She further said that if anything happens in Assam, it will also have an impact on Bengal.
It must be noted that, according to reports, names of around 70 per cent of Bengali population have not come up in the first part of the Draft NRC.

The most affected reportedly is the Bengali dominated Barak Valley in Assam. Organizations in Barak have meanwhile threatened to take out a huge protest against the non-inclusion.
