Guwahati, Aug 1 (UNI) An FIR was registered against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for her comments on Assam’s National Register of Citizen (NRC) that left out more than 40 lakh applicants.
The FIR was filed at the Naharkatia police station yesterday evening by BJP’s youth wing, Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM).
In the FIR, three BJYM activists – Jagdish Singh of Duliajan, Mridul Kalita of Joypur and Amulya Chengiari of Naharkatia – accused Mamata Banerjee of inciting hate and tension through her remarks on NRC of Assam.
Banerjee had attacked the Narendra Modi government over the NRC in Assam, saying people are being victimised to win elections and it would lead to a bloodbath and civil war.
She alleged that names of people having valid documents were not included in the NRC and the exercise was being carried out with a political motive.
“The situation cannot be tolerated. There will be a civil war, bloodbath in the country,” she had said.
Over 40 lakh people were excluded in the final draft list of the NRC released on Monday.
