Mega rally in Kolkata today against CAB-NRC

Kolkata, Dec 16 (UNI) A mega rally will be held in the city today in protest against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC).

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will be present herself in the protest march.

The rally will begin at 1 PM near the base of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar’s statue, and end at Jorasanko Thakurbari.

Ms Banerjee has appealed to people from all sections of the society to participate in the rally for people’s interest.

The Trinamool has had a consistent stand against CAB-NRC.
