As reported by CNN News 18, the TMC leaders, Diganta Saikia and Pradeep Pachoni, have asserted that Mamata Banerjee is commenting on the NRC without knowledge of the facts and ground realities. Further, they said that they shall not stand behind a leader who speaks without having any knowledge of the subject she is commenting on.

Mamata Banerjee has also drawn flak from various quarters in the state for her comments on the NRC. President of All Cachar Karimganj Hailakandi Students Association (ACKHSA), Pradip Dutta Roy, slammed the West Bengal Chief Minister during a media briefing. He said, “When National Register of Citizens (NRC) officials from Assam sent 1,11,048 names of applicants to her state for verification, the matter was not ‘suitably supported’ by her, or her government. Only 5,852 names got back verified from her state, which goes to show that she alone has gobbled up more than a lakh applicant”. Speaking to Northeast Now, he added, “The hue and cry that she is making is just to appease her minority vote bank of her state. The team of Trinamool Congress leaders that she is sending, would add more fuel to the fire that has not started at all in Assam, post declaration of NRC final draft”.

Former Chief Minister and senior Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) leader, Prafulla Kumar Mahanta, has also slammed Mamata Banerjee for her comments on the NRC. “Mamata Banerjee is trying to use the issue for political gains, which is not justified,” he said. Former Chief Minister and senior Congress leader, Tarun Gogoi, also made his displeasure known with Mamata Banerjee’s remarks. “Mamata Banerjee should not worry about what happens in Assam. She should be bothered by the politics of West Bengal. There is no question of harassment of genuine Indian citizens in the name of NRC update. We are here to protect each genuine Indian citizens from harassment,” he said.

Mamata Banerjee had said while speaking at a conclave that the NRC will lead to a civil war. Claiming that the NRC was done with a political motive and accusing the BJP of diving 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”.
