Tablighi Jamaat can’t explain mischief of members after leaving Delhi

While describing the 'difficulty' it faced to transport people out of Delhi, Tablighi Jamaat fails to explain why its associates and affiliates either mingled with people in their respective villages and why many of them just vanished in thin air

Kolkata: BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday said West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee opposed the NRC in Assam due to “vote-bank politics” and called upon the people of the State to uproot the TMC government, saying it patronised infiltration from Bangladesh as well as corruption.

He also asked Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief Banerjee to clarify their stand on infiltration from Bangladesh and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).

Addressing a well-attended public rally here, the BJP chief began his speech with the slogan of uprooting the TMC government from Bengal and said in order to do that, he would visit all the districts of the State.

Shah said that the BJP’s ruling status in 19 States is “meaningless” unless it brings ‘parivartan’ or change in Bengal, the birthplace of party founder Syama Prasad Mookerjee. He also countered Mamata’s allegation and said the BJP is not anti-Bengal, but is “anti-Mamata”.

Raking up the issue of NRC in Assam and Mamata’s opposition to it, Shah said the Centre was trying to crackdown on illegal immigrants from Bangladesh for the sake of national security.

“Why do you want to keep the Bangladeshi infiltrators?” Shah asked Banerjee, and said she was against the NRC for “vote-bank politics”.

He alleged that the Bangladeshi infiltrators were a vote bank of the previous Communist government and now, they had become a vote bank of the TMC.

“Rahul Gandhi and Mamata didi should clarify whether national security is important for them or the vote bank. For the BJP, the country comes first,” Shah said.
