Kolkata: West Bengal chief minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee accused BJP of ‘resorting to politics of killing in the state’. Mamta barbed BJP by saying that the National Register of Citizens (NRC) exercise will not be allowed in the state.

She also said that the BJP will be wiped out in the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

"We will not allow NRC exercise in Bengal. They (BJP leaders) are challenging us. If we are challenged, we will give them a befitting reply," she said.

she also alleged BJP of resorting to politics of killing in the state, referring to the recent panchayat polls in Bengal.

"The BJP won just a few seats in erstwhile Maoist hotbed of Jangalmahal by resorting to politics of killing. The former CPI(M) goons are now working for them," she said while addressing a rally on the occasion of Trinamool Chhatra Parishad (students' wing) foundation day.

Mamata also criticised tagging of an Indian citizen as a foreigner. She said that she would not "tolerate" if a citizen is wrongfully tagged a foreigner here.

"We are Bengal tigers, we will not tolerate if an Indian citizen is dubbed a foreigner," she affirmed.

Banerjee has been a vocal critic on Assam's National Register of Citizens (NRC) draft, calling it an attempt to isolate Bengalis, Biharis and Hindus out of the state.

"West Bengal will suffer because of this. There will be huge ramifications of this (Assam NRC). Where will these 40 lakh displaced persons stay? Bangladesh won't take them back," Banerjee had said after the release of the historic Assam NRC document that had names of 40.07 lakh applicants missing.
