Prafulla Mahanta Blackmailing People: Ranjit Dass
Reacting on NRC, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Assam Pradesh President Ranjit Dass said that former Chief Minister and AGP leader Prafulla Kumar Mahanta is blackmailing the people of Assam in the name of foreigners’.
The BJP President said that the NRC is a waste paper adding that the party will take further step on NRC by discussing the issue with the Union Home Minister Amit Shah during his visit to the state on September 8.
He further said that the NRC is not at all acceptable and asked the people to be united regarding the issue and the BJP will also take decision on the matter.
Criticizing Prafulla Kumar Mahanta, Dass said that how can the NRC be a milestone when a martyr’s family have been excluded from it.
Mahanta, after publication of the NRC mentioned it as a milestone. “I cannot accept his comment saying the NRC as a milestone as many Assamese, Bodo, Rabha, Karbi, Bengali, Assamese Muslim names have been left out of the NRC,” said Dass.
He further stated that it is very shocking that the genuine Indian citizens whose names have been excluded from the NRC will have to go to Foreigners’ Tribunals for the citizenship.
The BJP will move to Supreme Court regarding NRC, said Dass.
