Does Amit Shah’s mother, father have birth certificates? On NRC, Mamata Banerjee’s all-out attack against BJPMamata Banerjee Amit Shah file photoWest Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee launched a scathing attack against BJP president Amit Shah on the NRC issue on Tuesday.
Speaking at Nabanna, state secretariat, Banerjee questioned the BJP chief and asked Shah whether his parents had birth certificates.

The brutal attack came after Banerjee met a delegation from United Bengali Forum who had come from Assam to highlight their plight over the NRC issue.


“I want to ask Amit Shah, does his mother and father have birth certificates? If you ask me, I do not have my parent’s birth certificates.
Would Swami Vivekananda have the certificates? Atal ji is ill now, so I cannot ask him, but I wish I could ask him whether he has all the certificates? One family can keep the record, not all.

I belonged to a backward family, certificates were not maintained,” Banerjee said. She also said, “Would Gandhiji’s family have certificates?”
According to Zee Media’s pooja Mehta, Banerjee went on to call the entire NRC exercise as politically motivated. “This is a political move ahead of the elections. Sometimes they (the Centre) will play India-Pakistan, sometimes they will play India-China. I am also hearing that they are getting the currency notes printed outside the country,” she alleged.

This is not the first time that the Trinamool Congress supremo attacked the ruling party at the Centre and BJP president Amit Shah.
On Tuesday, she alleged that Bengali-speaking population was being targeted. She claimed a majority of the 40 lakh who did not make it to the Assam draft list were a Bengali-speaking people.
“Of the total 40 lakh, 25 lakhs are Bengali Hindus, 13 lakhs Bengali Muslims and 2 lakh Nepalis, Biharis and others. I have shown you so many documents.

People in Punjab and Pakistan speak the same language. People in Bengal and Bangladesh speak the same language. Isn’t Hindi and Urdu widely spoken in the country? If you do not like a particular community, you cannot spread hatred like this. Hasina ji (Bangla PM) is welcome, others not? Didn’t Bengal participate in the freedom struggle? What’s wrong in speaking the Bangla language?” she said.

She further said that even cows should now be given certificates to identify whether a cow is a refugee or an infiltrator. “My question is to all the Gau-rakshaks, is cow a refugee or an infiltrators.

Make certificates for cows so that we know whether they are refugees or infiltrators. Amit Shah may not eat Hilsa fish. But people in Bangladesh, Bengal, UP and Bihar eat Hilsa fish. Is Hilsa a refugee or an infiltrator? This is super-emergency,” she claimed.

This apart, she expressed dissent over not being consulted over the ‘one nation, one poll’ theory. “The BJP members feel that they are super human beings.

They have crossed all historical, geographical, political boundaries. They changed the name of Mughalsarai also. They did not discuss it with political parties or in Parliament. I will not be surprised if they go for presidential kind of elections. Commoners are the biggest sufferers. BJP government harasses the people. It is a militant organisation.’
