Mamata: We’ll shelter those excluded from Assam NRC
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has firmly stated that her state will give shelter to those Bangalis who are driven away from Asssam. The Indian chief minister said they will be given shelter in Alipurduar and Jalpaiguri districts. She made the comment at a rally held at Kamakhyaguri on Tuesday, reports Anandabazar Patrika. Expressing concerns over the exclusion of millions of people from the National Register of Citizens (NRC), Mamata said the NRC should contain the names of around 33,900,000 citizens. At least 13,900,000 names are missing from the list, she added.

  Mamata said she will not accept this exclusion of citizenship in Assam, and vowed to shelter anyone driven away from here. Mamata also told the people of Alipurduar and Jalpaiguri, who attended the rally, that it is a crucial part of the Bangali culture to provide support and shelter to the oppressed. The West Bengal chief minister is widely known for her concerns regarding the Bangalis both in home and abroad. According to sources from Trinamool Congress (TMC), Mamata is not only supportive towards the Bangalis but also towards the Bihari community in Assam.

  However, some of the other political entities in West Bengal believe that the NRC created by Assam authorities would create pressure on West Bengal, so Mamata, through her statements, is creating a counter pressure. Earlier in a statement, Mamata warned that Bengal and Assam are neighbours, and if one of them has an issue, it would inadvertently affect the other. According to a report by the Business Insider, the Assam Police on Thursday registered an FIR against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on complaints over her allegation that the Centre was conspiring to drive Bangalis out of Assam with the state's National Register of Citizens.
