Mumbai: Targeting PM Modi, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday led a protest march against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and National Register of Citizens (NRC) here and targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi by stating that he always talks about Pakistan.
Mamta said, “I am fighting against the National Register of Citizens and Citizenship (Amendment) Act. Join hands with me. All people are requested to come forward to save our democracy.”
She said, he (Modi) is the Prime Minister of India, but always talks about Pakistan. Why? We are Indians and we will definitely discuss our national issues.
Mamta further said that she would hold a similar rally in Darjeeling on 22 January and requested people to join her movement to save democracy.
The Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 seeks to grant citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Zoroastrians, Buddhists and Christians fleeing religious persecution from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh and who came to India on or before 31 December 2014.
