TMC to Hold Rallies Across Bengal Against Assam's NRC Draft
The Trinamool Congress (TMC) will take out rallies across West Bengal tomorrow in protest against the publication of National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam, a senior leader of the party said.
BJP national president Amit Shah is set to address a public meeting in the central part of Kolkata tomorrow.
"Barring Kolkata, we will organize rallies across the state in protest against the NRC. A separate rally will be taken out in the capital city on Sunday," Chatterjee told reporters.
"Lakhs of Bengalis have been omitted from the NRC draft. It has been done deliberately. We demand that these names be included in the list as they are also Indians. You
cannot make a person refugee in his own country," Chatterjee added.
Last week, the party had observed 'black day' across the state in protest against the detention of its MPs at Silchar airport in Assam.
TMC supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had claimed that the delegation members were manhandled at the airport and accused the BJP of imposing "super emergency" in the country.
