SHILLONG, Aug 5 - ASSU advisor Samujjal Bhattacharya today warned political parties �not to politicise and communalise� the NRC and said these political parties should instead seek a special session of Parliament and discuss on the �external aggression� the Northeastern region faces from illegal infiltration.

Addressing the media here after a meeting with NESO and KSU, Bhattacharya warned the political parties saying: �don�t give colour to the NRC issue. It�s not anti-Muslim or anti-Bengali. It�s anti-Bangladeshi.�

Stating that �India is for Indians� and �not for illegal Bangladeshis,� the AASU advisor said, the country cannot be a �dumping ground� and its citizen living as second class citizens in their own country.

Reiterating that the NRC is a legal and transparent exercise monitored by Supreme Court, Bhattacharya said, propaganda of some of the political parties painting the whole exercise otherwise must be rejected.

�The West Bengal Chief Minister should learn from Assam and try to save West Bengal first. The Government there must seal the Indo-Bangla border and check illegal influx from Bangladesh into their State,� he said. According to some estimates there are over 50 lakh illegal Bangladeshis living in West Bengal.

He said some of these political leaders are �not showing commitment� to the country by being vocally against the NRC, which is a legal process. The Trinamool Congress and also the Congress has been vocal against the NRC.

Bhattacharya said that it�s time that Indians are united on the issue and not take side with the illegal immigrants irrespective of their communities and their religion.
