NRC comment puts Mamata in trouble

GUWAHATI: Trouble brews for Mamata Banerjee a day after the West Bengal Chief Minister called the updated NRC in Assam a conspiracy against the Bangla speaking people.
The Gauhati police have booked Banerjee when TN Das, a lawyer based in Guwahati moved the Latashil police station with a complaint against her. In his FIR, Das said that her inflammatory speech at the public meeting in Birbhum might create communal riot in Assam where the people of different castes, creeds and religious have been living peacefully for decades.
Acting on the FIR, the police booked the chief minister under the Section 153-A of the Indian Penal Code.
Banerjee in her speech said she won't tolerate the conspiracy of NRC triggering huge protest in Assam where all political parties, organizations and individuals have slammed her.

The Assam government is preparing to move the Supreme Court against her since the country's apex court has been monitoring the entire process.
After three years of works, RGI released the first NRC draft naming 1.9 crore Indians living in Assam.
