Kolkata: West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday took out a  rally in north Kolkata to protest against NRC in Assam.

The TMC supremo along with her party colleagues began her march from Sinthee More in the northern fringes of the city around 3 pm.

 

The rally will culminate at Shyambazar five-point crossing, 5 km away.

The Trinamul Congress leadership, which has been one of the vociferous critics of the NRC, has accused the BJP of trying to divide people through the exercise.

The party had on September 7 and 8 taken out rallies in other parts of the state to oppose the exercise to update citizenship register.

Ms Banerjee warns BJP not to play with fire in the name of NRC and said she would never allow the exercise in the state. She challenged BJP leaders to touch even one citizen of West Bengal in the name of the National Register of Citizens (NRC). “We will never allow NRC in Bengal. We will not allow them to divide the people on religious and caste lines. We will not accept NRC in Assam. They have silenced the people of Assam by using police administration  but they cannot silence Bengal,” she said.
