West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday alleged that deactivating Aadhaar cards is a political game and asserted that her government has stopped that “conspiracy” of the central government.

Addressing a programme organised on the occasion International Mother Language Day in Calcutta, she claimed that Aadhaar cards of the people belonging to the Matua community were deactivated.

“Deactivating Aadhaar cards was a political game, a vote bank game. We have stopped the conspiracy behind Aadhaar card deactivation,” Banerjee said.

Earlier this week, she announced plans to provide alternative identification cards to the affected people.
