GUWAHATI, Aug 4 - A first information report (FIR) has been filed at the Geetanagar Police Station here against West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee and eight of her party�s lawmakers for their recent anti-NRC fits.
Filing the FIR, Dhrubajyoti Talukdar of RG Baruah Road said that on July 30 last Mamata Banerjee made vicious statements on the NRC updating process in Assam while addressing a press conference. Her statements, widely carried by the media across the country, were totally communal as they tried to taint the entire NRC updating process as a Bengali versus Assamese one.
Her statements are likely to cause social turmoil in the form of fratricidal riots in Assam, besides posing serious threats to the life and property of the Assamese people living in West Bengal and other parts of the country.
Not being content with those statements alone, Banerjee on August 2, 2018 sent an eight-member delegation of the Trinamool lawmakers comprising Sukhendu Shekhar Roy, Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, Ratna Dey Nag, Nadimul Haque, Arpita Ghosh, Mamata Thakur, Firhad Hakim and Mahua Moitra to Silchar, with an intent to aggravate the tense situation already created by her. This was done by Banerjee despite Section 144 of the IPC being in force there.
The Trinamool lawmakers caused chaos at the Kumbhirgram Airport and injured three police personnel � Champa Das, Partha Shil and Rubirani Das.
It is evident now that Mamata Banerjee, along with her party colleagues mentioned herein, was attempting to foment communal hatred and enmity and thus create communal riot in Assam.
This needs to be curbed immediately. And hence, a case is needed to be registered against Banerjee and her party colleagues under the appropriate sections of law and after investigation of the matter, �the guilty persons may be punished according to the law� of the land, said Talukdar.
Meanwhile, one of the general secretaries of voluntary organisation Save Guwahati Build Guwahati Kailash Sarma said that he had lodged an FIR against Mamata Banerjee at the Latasil Police Station here on January 4 this year for her alleged attempts at damaging the age-old communal harmony of the State�s peoples. Had the authorities taken prompt action on his FIR, the West Bengal Chief Minister would not have dared to make all the histrionics she is resorting to at present, Sarma said.
