Trinamool organises protests across Bangla against NRC
All India Trinamool Congress organised rallies and street corner meetings at various places in the State, as part of “mass protests” against the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and the “divisive” politics of the BJP. These protests were carried out on September 7 and 8.
Carrying posters and placards in several districts, Trinamool supporters shouted slogans against the BJP-led government and demanded immediate repeal of the NRC in Assam.
“Protest rallies were organised in various parts of the state yesterday and today. Our party workers have vowed not to allow NRC in Bengal. Locals, too, joined in,” AITC Secretary General Partha Chatterjee said.
“Party cadres have vowed that they can sacrifice their lives but would never allow division of Bengal,” senior party leader and minister Tapan Dasgupta said.
Trinamool Chairperson is also going to participate in a mega rally against NRC on September 12 in north Kolkata.
