A delegation of eight MPs belonging to the Trinamool Congress (TMC) unsuccessfully tried to enter Assam through Silchar airport yesterday (2 August), ANI has reported. The TMC has been raising objections regarding the release of National Register of Citizens (NRC) in the state in which 40 lakh people were excluded.

The Assam police however, did not allow the delegation to enter the state to prevent any disruption in law and order. The TMC MPs however, tried to forcefully exit the airport leading to a scuffle with the airport security.

"We had requested the delegation of TMC leaders not to come to Silchar now as it was important for us to maintain peace in the state. Moreover, Section 144 is imposed in Cachar dist. We feared that their arrival might create differences among people,” Director General(DG) of Assam Police, Kuladhar Saikia told ANI .

In a video accessed by ANI , Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP from Karimpur, West Bengal Mahua Moitra is seen assaulting a lady constable in Silchar airport. The constable was physically assaulted by the MP in spite of the former’s request to calm down. The video also shows, TMC party workers sitting on the conveyor belt of the airport as a mark of protest.

The DG of Assam Police said that two police constables and one worker of local administration had been injured in the scuffle. Further, he added that legal action would be taken in relation to the incident.

Meanwhile, TMC leader and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee alleged that the country was facing a ‘super emergency’ as the MPs weren’t allowed to enter the state. She had earlier warned of ‘civil war’ and ‘bloodbath’ in the country due to the NRC exercise.
