Mamata to meet party MPs MLAs on December 20 on plan to counter NRC CAB
| Thursday | 12th December, 2019
Kolkata: Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee will meet all the party MLAs and MPs on December 20, to discuss the blueprint to counter the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and the Citizens Amendment Bill (CAB).
The party has asked all the legislators and parliamentarians to be present at the meeting without fail.
After NRC was implemented in Assam, the Trinamool supremo had sent a delegation led by Firhad Hakim to meet those whose names had been dropped from the list.
She alleged that out of the 19 lakh people whose names have been dropped from the NRC list in Assam, 12 lakh are Bengalis.
Banerjee has claimed repeatedly that NRC and CAB are scare-tactics by the Centre to divert the attention of the people from the nation's economic woes.
