Rajnath assures Didi on NRC Draft: Nobody will be harassed

New Delhi, August 1, News24 Bureau: If someone has been most reactive ever since the National Register of Citizens Draft has declared 40 lakh people 'outsiders', it's West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee.
The BJP has further planned to make things difficult for Mamata Banerjee by saying that if it makes its government in West Bengal there too an NRC Draft will be prepared.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and discussed about bringing possible amendments to the National Register of Citizens bill.
"I asked him to amend the NRC Bill or bring a new bill. He has assured me they (government) will not harass people. I also spoke to him about reports of NRC being implemented in Bengal," she said after meeting Singh.

Banerjee further said that there will be 'civil war and bloodbath' if the issue of the Assam citizen's list is not solved.

Mamata said that Singh, in the meeting, assured her that the people who have been left out from the Assam NRC final draft will not be harassed.
