West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has told India’s Home Minister Amit Shah about her objection to the National Citizens’ Register (NRC). On the day of the objection, four people died in NRC panic in different parts of the state.

According to a report in the Kolkata daily Anand Bazar, 52-year-old Amena Begum died after falling ill in Hingalganj in the North 24 Parganas. Family members say that Amena went to her father’s house in Bankura to find the old documents in the NRC’s thoughts. But she did not find the required documents. After that she became ill.

Neighbors say Amena was scared that she might not have the family.

Explaining how dangerous this fear of losing the home can be, the state food minister Jyotiriya Mallick said, “Many more would die in the NRC panic if this dirty game of politics did not stop.”

But on Friday, the Chief Minister assured the people of the state that there is no fear, there will be no NRC in the state.

But before her assurance, NRC concerns have spread like wildfire across the state. On Tuesday, Milan Mandal, 27, of Murshidabad committed suicide. Family members have claimed that Milon committed suicide in fear of losing the home.

On Friday, 39-year-old Ananda Roy, a resident of Mainaguri in Jalpaiguri district committed suicide. His family members made the same complaint.

The 52-year-old Montu Sarkar died for the same reason in Balurghat on the same day – family members of Montu Sarkar claimed so.
