Bankura (West Bengal), Feb 11 (TIWN) Demanding the BJP scrap CAA and drop plans for nationwide NRC after its Delhi Assembly poll rout, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday said the saffron party was now gradually becoming "a stateless entity" and her state will be the one to drive the last nail into its coffin next year.

Modi told her to come to New Delhi and discuss the matter, she told reporters after a meeting with the PM at Raj Bhawan.

Just after the meeting, Banerjee went straight to TMC students wing sit-in demonstration in the city against CAA, where she reiterated her stand that the new Citizenship law would never be implemented in Bengal.

Banerjee termed her meeting with PM Modi as a "courtsey visit" and said she has raised issues regarding the due financial assitance that the state is yet to receive from the Centre.

"It was a courtsey meeting. I told him about Rs 28,000 crore that the state is yet to receive from the Centre. Including Rs 7000 crore, we are supposed to get for the cyclone Fani.

"I acquainted him that we are against CAA, NPR and NRC . I also told him that protest is going on across the country against CAA, NRC and NPR.
