Mamata Banerjee’s double-standards over the illegal immigrants in Assam unveiled

The TMC supremo and West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee seems to be using the Assam NRC (National Register for Citizens) draft list row to stir a fresh brouhaha. However, in the excitement of a fresh political opportunity, she forgets her own past statements regarding the NRC.

As reported by Times Now, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday said that she did not support the NRC in Assam, claiming that it could lead to unrest in the country. However, in contrary, a video from 2005 shows that she had raised the same issue in the Lok Sabha, only at that time she had alleged that illegal immigrants from Bangladesh had spelt disaster for West Bengal.

On Monday when Assam released the NRC draft leaving out 40 lakh people of the state the Trinamool Congress chief was quick at launching a lethal attack at BJP-led government, accusing them of “forceful eviction” by saying that people had become ‘refugees’ in their own state and that the Centre was targeting Bengalis and Biharis. Her comment saying that the NRC was a politically motivated move by the BJP to get votes, adding that it could lead to a civil war, created a complete disorder, agitating the BJP chief Amit Shah and others and moreover exhibiting her hypocrisy for the same.

On 4th August, 2005, when Banerjee was in the Opposition and the state was under the CPI(M) rule, she held very differing views on the issue. During a session in the Lok Sabha, Banerjee had raised the issue of illegal immigrants in West Bengal, saying that illegals migrants from Bangladesh have spelt disaster for the state.

Taking street-level protest into the Parliament, she had stepped into the well of the house after being disallowed to raise this issue in the Lok Sabha and was highly condemned for throwing the papers at the deputy Speaker of Lok Sabha, Charanjit Singh Atwal, threatening to resign and storming out of the house.

Now, in 2018, Banerjee has rejected the Supreme Court-monitored NRC list brought out by the Assam government, displaying her double-standards by saying, she did not want to see her “motherland divided.”

Meanwhile, Bharatiya Janata Party chief took on opposition parties, saying that they were “backing infiltrators”. He added that the NDA government had “shown courage” by bringing out the NRC list, something which the UPA did not dare do, and accused the Congress of indulging in “appeasement politics”.
