Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday reiterated that the BJP-led NDA is going to achieve an absolute majority by winning 270 seats. While addressing a rally in West Bengal's Bongaon, the Home Minister said the fight is only to 'cross 400'.

Addressing a public meeting in Bangaon, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said, "4 phases of polling have been completed. Elections for 380 seats have been completed. Elections for 18 seats in Bengal have been completed. Today I tell you that out of 380, PM Modi has achieved absolute majority by winning 270 seats. The fight ahead is to cross 400..."

In a bid to address concerns of the Matuas over citizenship, Amit Shah on Tuesday also assured the community that its members would get citizenship under the CAA and accused West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of spreading canards about it. Shah said, “Mamata Banerjee can never stop the implementation of the Citizenship Amendment Act in Bengal as it is a law by the central government.”

“No power in the world can stop my refugee brothers from becoming citizens of India. This is the promise of Modi Ji. Mamata Banerjee must remember that citizenship falls under the exclusive authority of the central government, not the state governments,” he said.

Shah accused Banerjee of “lying” and spreading canards about the CAA. “Mamata Banerjee is lying that anyone who applies for citizenship under the CAA will face problems. I have come to assure the people of the Matua community that no one will face any trouble. You will get citizenship and will be able to live with respect in the country,” he added.
