Trinamool Congress has announced that the party will hold a mass rally across the state to protest against the publication of NRC (National Register of Citizens) list in the adjoining state of Assam.

It has been reported that the decision was taken after the series of discussion in an afternoon meeting with Mamata Banerjee on Monday. The mass protests will be held on 7-8 September. On 12 September, the party will organize a protest rally in the city from Chiria More to Shyambazar in north Kolkata. It is expected that the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will also be attending the protest rally of 12 September.

NRC data was published on 31 August. It excluded over 19 lakh names, owing to which, the opposition parties have slammed the ruling BJP government of divisive politics and excluding genuine Indians. Mamata Banerjee has also termed the NRC exercise as “fiasco”. According to NRC state coordinator Prateek Hajela, a total of 3,30,27,661 people had applied for inclusion in the NRC. Of them, 3,11,21,004 have been included in the final list and 19,06,657 excluded.

A senior party leader from TMC said that Mamata Banerjee has directed all the leaders to reach out to people in the state and inform them about NRC and the politics of BJP. She also urged her party members to apprise the general public as to what would happen if such NRC is applied to West Bengal.

Senior TMC leader LIKE Firhad Hakim and the party’s Rajya Sabha deputy leader Sukhendu Sekhar Roy have been assigned the duty to keep in touch with leaders of the northeastern states on the matter. While Lok Sabha party leader Sudip Bandopadhyay has been tasked to connect with the regional parties on the NRC issue.

The fear of NRC being implemented in West Bengal looms over the fact that West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh had said if his party grabs power in 2021 state assembly polls, it will bring in NRC in the state.
