Case registered against Mamata Banerjee for ‘civil war’ and ‘blood bath’ comment after NRC draft

A case has been registered against the Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee, for inciting violence and threatening people with a bloodbath in the country, after the final draft of National Register of Citizens (NRC) was published.

The police complaint has been registered at Naharkatia police station against the Bengal Chief Minister by the BJP’s youth wing in Assam’s Dibrugarh district. The police have confirmed that they are examining the complaint and are yet to register an FIR in the matter.

Mamata Banerjee speaking at a conclave had said that “The NRC is being done with a political motive. We will not let this happen. They (BJP) are trying to divide the people.

She said “If it goes on like this, don’t you think it will create a civil war, don’t you think it will create a bloody war? The civil unrest has already started as section 144 has been imposed in Assam”. She also said that “If this is a blunder, I am ready to do the blunder but I will not excuse this”.

She reiterated her ‘civil war’ comment while speaking to the media about her meeting with Rajnath Singh.

Amit Shah, the president of BJP rejected all the charges and said that the National Registry of Citizens (NRC) in Assam is a matter of National Security and also the right of every Indian. Shah asserted that the NDA government was determined to throw out the illegal Bangladeshis from the country and that NRC will be implemented “to the last full stop”. He asked all the opposition parties to clear their stand on the issue of NRC.

The process of the NRC began after the Supreme Court had asked the government to finalize and publish the final list of NRC, by the end of July to identify the actual citizens of the state and flush out the illegal immigrants settling in the state. The state government had published the final list comprising of 2.89 crore people out of 3.29 crore of total people. The remaining 40 lakh people are yet to prove their lineage to avoid being considered as illegal immigrants.
