Modi, Shah statements on nationwide NRC contradictory: Mamata Banerjee

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee claimed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah were making contradictory statements on NRC and wondered who was speaking the truth.

Addressing a rally here, Banerjee, who is also the TMC supremo, said there was "no bigger fraud than the BJP", and people should be aware of the party's intentions.

"The prime minister is saying there has been no discussion or proposal on (nationwide implementation of) National Register of Citizens (NRC). But a few days ago, BJP president and Union Home Minister Amit Shah had said NRC exercise would be carried out across the country.

"Both the statements are contradictory. We wonder who is speaking the truth. They are trying to create confusion," the chief minister said.
