"She should stop provoking people and must make efforts in the direction of bringing peace in the state. Anti-national forces in West Bengal have made life tough for the common man. Merely targeting the Prime Minister is not going to help her. She should first focus on protecting her own house," the Union Minister said while speaking to ANI in New Delhi.

Banerjee had led a protest march against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC) and targeted Modi by stating that he always talks about Pakistan. "I am fighting against the NRC and CAA. Join hands with me. Requesting all people to come forward to save our democracy," she had said.

"He (Modi) is the Prime Minister of India, but always talks about Pakistan. Why? We are Indians and we will definitely discuss our national issues", Banerjee had stated. The CAA seeks to grant citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Parsis, Buddhists, and Christians fleeing religious persecution from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh and who came to India on or before 31 December, 2014.
