BJP President Amit Shah today launched a scathing attack on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Congress President Rahul Gandhi for opposing the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam.
Addressing a public rally in Kolkata, Mr. Shah pointed out the Assam accord was signed by former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and at that time, the Congress had no problems with the NRC.
He alleged that for the sake of vote-bank politics, Congress is not making its stand clear on illegal migration from Bangladesh. Mr. Shah accused the Trinamool Congress of patronising infiltration from Bangladesh as well as corruption.
The BJP Chief also claimed that television news channels were blacked out by the TMC in various parts of West Bengal to prevent people from listening to his address.
