We are not against West Bengal, but definitely against Mamata Banerjee: Amit Shah
Kolkata, Aug 11: BJP President Amit Shah demanded Trinamool Congress (TMC) should clear their stand on refugees from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh.
In the first visit to West Bengal after the release of Assam NRC, Shah, said, "We are not against West Bengal, but we are definitely against Mamata Banerjee. I am here to protest against the TMC."
"We will make sure that the process of NRC Assam is carried out peacefully. Neither Mamata Banerjee nor Rahul Gandhi can stop us from doing it," Sha said in a "Yuva Swabhiman Samavesh" held in Kolkata.
"We want to ask Mamata Banerjee why is she protecting Bangladeshi infiltrators? Rahul Gandhi is also not clarifying his stand on the issue. This is because of Congress' vote-bank politics:?," Shah questioned Mamata Banerjee over her opposition against NRC Assam.
He alleged that signals of all Bengali channels have been lowered so that people will not be able to watch the rally. "But even if you try to suppress our voices, we will go to every district of Bengal and throw TMC out, " Shah asserted.
Amidst strong opposition by West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee over Assam NRC, the BJP chief Amit Shah has arrived at Mayo Road to address a sea of supporters ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
Amit Shah said young men and women who have come from all parts of West Bengal to attend the "Yuva Swabhiman Samavesh", an awakening that will uproot the undemocratic and totalitarian TMC government in the state.
Shah has set an ambitious target for the party in Bengal for the Lok Sabha election, asking the party cadre to ensure 22 out of the 42 seats. He has made regular visits since 2017. He visited Bengal on April 25 and then on September 11 last year. He also visited Bengal on June 27 and Saturday's visit would be his second in less than 50 days.
