Mumbai: Union Minister Smriti Irani lambasted at West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee as she decided to oppose NRC saying that the BJP-led government at the Centre is committed to protecting the rights of each and every citizen of the country.
“No Indian will be left out… we are dedicated to protecting the rights of the citizens of the country,” the union minister said on NRC.
Irani criticized Banerjee for her opposition to the NRC, saying it falsified her stand on illegal migrants.
The Chief Minister said that the Chief Minister is well aware of the policies of the Central Government.
“The militant stance taken by Mamata Banerjee is preventing the people of the state from taking advantage of the benefits provided by the central government, which could have reached farmers, women and children.
“Establishment of industries have been stalled by the West Bengal government..the Lok Sabha election results in West Bengal has shown that people of the state want to change,” Irani said.
