Didi to walk in protest rally against NRC
Trinamool Chairperson Mamata Banerjee will walk in a protest rally today against National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam, which has excluded 19 lakh people. The rally will begin at Sinthi More and end at Shyambazar. Apart from Didi, elected representatives and party functionaries of Trinamool will be present in the rally.
Last week, the West Bengal Assembly had passed a resolution against implementation of NRC in the State. Didi had always maintained that NRC is nothing but political vendetta by the BJP-led government at the Centre.
After the final draft of NRC in Assam was published, she had tweeted: “The NRC fiasco has exposed all those who tried to take political mileage out of it. They have a lot to answer to the nation. This is what happens when an act is guided by an ulterior motive rather than the good of the society and the larger interest of the nation.”
She added, “My heart goes out to all those, especially the large number of Bengali speaking brothers and sisters, who are made to suffer because of this botched-up process.”
