INDIA coalition will revoke CAA, NRC, UCC if it wins, says West Bengal Chief Minister

The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), Uniform Civil Code (UCC) and National Register of Citizens (NRC) will all be revoked by the INDIA coalition if it comes to power after the Lok Sabha elections 2024, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee told the voters on Thursday.

The statements were made by the Trinamool Congress (TMC) chairperson at the back-to-back rallies which were conducted in East and West Midnapore districts. “Don’t vote for BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) if you don’t want to spend the rest of your life in prison. I promise that if Modi goes and if INDIA alliance forms the government, then NRC, CAA and UCC will all be revoked,” Banerjee said at the Midnapore constituency in the West Midnapore district.

Further stating about the NRC, Banerjee claimed that the PM Narendra Modi will not be able to enforce NRC here as long as she is the Chief Minister of West Bengal. “I did not allow NRC here. (Prime Minister Narendra) Modi knows he cannot enforce NRC in Bengal as long as Mamata is around. That’s why he wants to see me go. BJP doesn’t know that I have endured torture and stood before bullets during my years in politics. Nobody can compete with me,” Banerjee said.

Since the rallies started taking place in West Bengal before the beginning of the Lok Sabha polls, Banerjee has been speaking against of The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). She is speaking this especially in regions where the Dalit Namasudra and the Matua communities have significant presence. However, in recent CAA development, on Wednesday, there were around 300 people, who came from Pakistan, were given citizenship certificates in Delhi by the Union government.

On the other hand, in West Bengal, however, the Matuas and the Namasudras have so far avoided filing online applications since most of them do not possess the required Bangladeshi documents to prove their foreign origin.
