Mamata Banerjee to meet Rajnath Singh today over Assam NRC final draft
New Delhi, July 31: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to meet Home Minister Rajnath Singh later on Tuesday to talk about NRC Final Draft.
Mamata's Trinamool Congress has also decided to send an eight-member delegation to Assam later this week to assess the situation in the north-eastern state in the wake of the publication of the final draft of the NRC. Nearly 40 lakh people were declared 'outsiders' in the NRC draft released on Monday.
The TMC chief will also meet Yashwant Sinha and Shatrughan Sinha at advocate Ram Jethmalani's residence.
Mamata Banerjee had earlier accused the BJP-led central government of resorting to "vote-bank politics" with regard to the NRC. "Indian citizens have become refugees" in their own land, she said.
Amid tight security, the much-awaited NRC final draft was published in Assam on Monday with over 2.89 crore names of the 3.29 crore applicants.
