Raising the issue during Zero Hour in the Lok Sabha, Trinamool Congress (TMC) member Dinesh Trivedi and Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury of the Congress said that Bengalis living in the northeastern states were feeling unsafe.
"We have seen how Bengalis residing in Assam have been brutally killed in broad daylight. You will appreciate the fact that our delegation had gone and seen first hand how the Bengalis have been murdered there," Trivedi said.
Chowdhury said Bengalis move out of West Bengal in search of livelihood but were not feeling safe in Assam.
"They are being killed. The Centre should ask the state to ensure their safety," he said.
