TMC to hold rallies across West Bengal against NRC

| | Kolkata

The Trinamool Congress (TMC) will take out rallies across West Bengal on Saturday to protest the publication of National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam, a senior leader of the party said.

The state capital, however, has been exempted from Saturday's plan, TMC secretary-general and West Bengal Education Minister Partha Chatterjee said here on Friday.

BJP national president Amit Shah is set to address a public meeting on Saturday in the central part of Kolkata.

"Barring Kolkata, we will organise 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 here.

The minister also accused the BJP-led Assam Government of "deliberately omitting" Bengalis from the NRC draft.
