Kolkata: Ruling out any scope for the proposed Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) or any National Register of Citizens (NRC) exercise in West Bengal, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday accused the BJP, without naming it, of trying to divide the people of the state on the twin issues.
The Chief Minister said that people should not worry about NRC or CAB, as neither will become a reality in West Bengal.
"There will neither be CAB, nor NRC.

"At some other places, they are trying to divide Bengalis who came as refugees, and others who have been living here for generations.
