Kolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who is known to be one of the fiercest critics of the National Register of Citizens (NRC), on Friday reiterated that no such exercise will be held in Bengal.
Speaking at the state Secretariat on Friday after her return from New Delhi, Banerjee said: "NRC will not come to Bengal.
People who have been living in Bengal for so many years, they'll live here as they have been living here.
"People are talking about NRC in Bengal to gain political mileage but rest assured, there won't be any NRC in Bengal."
Speaking about Assam NRC, she added: "It was done by the Congress government and please do not confuse the NRC in Assam and the fresh NRC in Bengal."
