Banerjee, while addressing a rally of the law against citizens in Siliguri, said it is a shame that even after 70 years of independence, people have to prove their nationality.

India is a great country with a rich culture and heritage. Why the PM regularly compare our country with Pakistan?

Is the Prime Minister of India or the ambassador of Pakistan. Why is Pakistan referred to in each issue? said the head of government.

She accused the BJP of deliberately creating confusion about the implementation of the National Register of Citizens (), saying its leaders have been making contradictory statements on the subject.
