Trinamool Congress (TMC) has blamed the BJP for the intrusion, saying the border is protected by central forces.
Kolkata: Responding to a question on the Citizenship Amendment Act and NRC during a press conference during his two-day visit to West Bengal, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said that the rules of the Citizenship Amendment Act have not yet been drafted. Due to the Coronavirus crisis across the country, we have not paid attention to it and cannot undertake such a huge campaign in the country at this time.
Amit Shah silent on NRC question
During the press conference, a reporter quoted the Union Home Minister’s statement that he was talking about the Citizenship Amendment Act and the NRC about Corona Logic, but after a year, the Citizenship Amendment Act has not been implemented and NRC not even initiated.
Answering the question, Amit Shah said that the rules of the Citizenship Amendment Act have not been implemented due to the coronavirus. When the situation in the country becomes peaceful, the Citizenship Amendment Act will be enacted. However, Amit Shah did not say anything about the implementation of NRC.

It should be noted that BJP General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya had earlier said that the Citizenship Amendment Act will be implemented in West Bengal from January.
During the two-day visit to Bengal, Amit Shah was to visit the Matua community stronghold in the North 24 Parganas. However, according to sources, the trip has been canceled due to a delay in the implementation of the Citizenship Amendment Act.
Holding the Trinamool Congress responsible for illegal infiltration in West Bengal, Amit Shah said that as long as Mamata Banerjee is in power in West Bengal, the infiltration from Bangladesh will not stop. BJP needs to come to power to prevent illegal infiltration.
Central responsible for illegal intrusion
The Trinamool Congress (TMC) has blamed the BJP for the intrusion, saying the border is protected by central forces. Therefore, if illegal infiltration occurs, the Central Government is also responsible for the same.
Earlier, after a roadshow in Shanti Niketan, Amit Shah said, “I have attended and organized many roadshows in my life, but I have never seen such a big roadshow before.”
“This roadshow is a reflection of the anger of the people against the Mamata Banerjee government. This crowd reflects the trust of the people in the development agenda of Narendra Modi,” he said. He said that Rabindranath Tagore’s Sonar Bangla’s dream will come true and Bengal’s greatness will be restored.
On being declared an outsider, Amit Shah said that Mamta Banerjee had lost her mental balance. He has no concern for the integrity and unity of the country. He said that West Bengal could not tolerate such parochialism. Did not Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, and Narasimha Rao visit West Bengal Bengal before Mamata Banerjee?
