Launching a scathing attack on the Home Minister and BJP leader Amit Shah, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said that she will not allow the execution of the NRC and Citizenship Act in her state.

The leader was addressing a mass gathering in Kolkata on Wednesday. Mamata Banerjee also iterated her party’s slogan over the recent events which is “No CAA and No NRC”.

TMC president also accused Amit Shah of acting as an agent of the Bhartiya Janta Party. As quoted by ANI, she said, “You (Amit Shah) are Home Minister of the country, not only a BJP leader. Please maintain peace in the country. You have not adhered to ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas’ but ‘sabke saath sarvanash’ (devastation for all). Withdraw CAA and NRC or else I will see how you will implement it here.”

The whole country is currently undergoing a tensed phase over the passage of the Citizenship Act that aims to declare Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, Buddhists, Zorastrian, Parsis, and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan eligible for citizenship who came to India before December 31, 2014.

Earlier on yesterday, many opposition leaders had met President Ram Nath Kovind on Tuesday to request him to advise the Central government to scrap the Citizenship Amendment Act.

In other related news, the Supreme Court has refused to put a stay on the CAA on Wednesday. However, the top court has issued a notice to the Central government to consider the pleas that seek to challenge the legislation.
