Trinamool holds protest rallies across Bengal against NRC

PTI Last Updated at 11 Aug 2018, 18:08 IST India

Kolkata, Aug 11 (PTI) The Trinamool Congress (TMC) today took out rallies across the state in protest against the publication of the complete draft of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam. Senior TMC leaders, ministers and elected representatives today conducted rallies in various parts of the state wearing black badges. Holding placards, the TMC activists raised slogans against the BJP governments at the Centre as well as Assam. "In the name of NRC, they (BJP government in Assam) have deliberately omitted the names of Bengalis and other communities from the list. This is really shameful and we condemn it," TMC Secretary General Partha Chatterjee said. The complete draft of the NRC was published on July 30 in Assam with 2.89 lakh names out of 3.29 applicants. Over 40 lakh people did not make it to the list. The TMC exempted Kolkata from the demonstrations today owing to BJP national president Amit Shah's public meeting in the city. The TMC will organize protest rallies in Kolkata tomorrow. (This story has not been edited by Devdiscourse staff and is auto-generated from a syndicated feed.)
