West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said in a Trinamool Congress rally that after many years of independence why we need to prove citizenship. Mamta Banerjee has demanded that a referendum should be held on the Citizenship Amendment Act and NRC and It should be monitored by United Nations(UN).
Mamta Banerjee also said that after the referendum, let’s see who wins. Challenging the Modi government at the Center, Mamta further said that if you lose, you will have to resign. Mamta said that I challenge you, do not try to divide the country using Facebook and communal riots.
If BJP has guts, it should go for a UN-monitored referendum on amended Citizenship Act and NRC: Mamata Banerjee at Kolkata rally— Press Trust of India (@PTI_News) December 19, 2019
Mamta Banerjee said that if Afghanistan is brother of India, then why is Sri Lanka not? I appeal to the public that people take to the streets. Do not sit at home, forget political ideology and get on the streets.
Forget your political affiliation. Forget your religious identity. No matter which part of India you reside in, come join the protests. Hit the streets: @MamataOfficial #NoCABNoNRC pic.twitter.com/fQRdA9iZh4— All India Trinamool Congress (@AITCofficial) December 19, 2019
It is a very shocking comment by West Bengal chief Minister Mamata Banerjee about referendum. Till date, only Pakistan had asked for UN intervention and referendum in Kashmir but now Mamata Banerjee is asking referendum across the India for NRC and CAA.
This is history created. Till date, only Pakistan had asked for UN intervention – in Kashmir. Law should be amended to to allow ECI to disqualify candidates on mental issues! https://t.co/bwnmjjEDNa— Sanjay Dixit ಸಂಜಯ್ ದೀಕ್ಷಿತ್ संजय दीक्षित (@Sanjay_Dixit) December 20, 2019
West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar slammed Mamata Banerjee for taking unacceptable unconstitutional route of seeking outside intervention in our internal matters and ignored governor’s appeal.
.@MamataOfficial. I am saddened that CM Mamata Bannerjee has taken to totally unacceptable unconstitutional route by her public stance of seeking outside intervention in our internal matters and ignored my appeal. This has immeasurably caused damage to our democratic fabric.— Jagdeep Dhankhar (@jdhankhar1) December 20, 2019
West bengal Governor asked her to act as per her oath and regretfully withdraw her statement.
Her stance is an outrage of essence and letter of of our constitution and no nation loving person can appreciate or countenance it. I am sure she would forthwith revisit her stance.— Jagdeep Dhankhar (@jdhankhar1) December 20, 2019
