Kolkata: The protest against the amended Citizenship Act continues in West Bengal has entered fourth-day today with incidents of rail and road blockades reported from across the state.
Reacting to the state’s unrest, CM Mamata Banerjee also hit the streets in protest against NRC as well as CAA ignoring Governor Jagdeep Dhankar’s remark that it would be “unconstitutional and inflammatory,” Indiatoday reports.
Taking to the streets in Kolkata she said: “Only BJP will remain here everyone else will be made to leave, this is their politics. It will never happen. India is everyone’s. Agar sabka sath nahi rahega toh sabka vikas kaise hoga? Who is the Citizenship Act for? We are all citizens. Didn’t you cast vote? Don’t you live here? Once I was alone. Today Delhi’s CM says that he won’t allow this. Bihar’s CM says that he won’t allow NRC, I tell him don’t allow Citizenship Amendment Act too. MP’s CM said that, Punjab’s CM also said that, Chhattisgarh’s CM said that, Kerala’s CM said that, everyone has to say it,”
The CM also stated the people who indulged in violence against the protestors took money from BJP.
Slamming the ruling saffron party, CM Banerjee said: “Few people took money from BJP and indulged in vandalism and arson, alleges Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee amid violence in Bengal.”
