    However this was not her stance 13 years back. In 2005, Mamata had sought for a discussion on a very serious matter. She had come up with two sets of papers on illegal immigration from Bangladesh.

    She was however denied permission to speak on the subject. What followed was Mamata losing her cool, tearing up the papers and throwing it towards the deputy speaker of the Lok Sabha, Charanjeet Singh Atwal.

    While accusing the CPI-M, she said they were gaining from illegal Bangladeshis. She even submitted her resignation over the issue. It was not accepted as it was not in a proper format.
