Siliguri, 11th February: A protest was organized by Trinamool Congress today against the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and Citizenship (Amendment) Act 2019 (CAA) in Ward No. 39 under Siliguri Municipal Corporation.
The demonstration was conducted in front of the statue of Swami Vivekananda under the leadership of Swapan Das, TMC Secretary of Ward No. 39. During this period, TMC workers raised slogans of 'No NRC, No CAA and No NPR' and asked the Central Government to withdraw these laws.
Das stated that through these laws, the central government is trying to divide the people. The Ward No. 39 TMC Secretary further assured the people that they need not worry as long as they have the Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to watch over them. He further said that the laws will have to be withdrawn by the Central Government or else the TMC will launch a massive movement in the coming days. A large number of Trinamool workers were present in this protest.
