Mamata to table anti-CAA resolution in assembly
After Kerala and Punjab now the Bengal also decided to oppose Citizenship Amendment act (CAA). The Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee stated that the Trinamool Congress (TMC) government too will pass a resolution against the CAA.
She stated 'For CAA we will pass a resolution in assembly within three to four days. We passed a resolution against CAB and NRC. At that time the CAB was a bill. Now it is a law. So, we will pass a resolution demanding its withdrawal,” said Banerjee at the Kolkata airport before leaving for North Bengal where she will lead anti-CAA rallies in the plains and Darjeeling till January 24.
Significantly, Banerjee’s statement comes two days after TMC Lok Sabha MP Saugata Roy said at an anti-CAA training programme for party leaders in North 24 Parganas district that Bengal was a step behind Kerala and Punjab in opposing CAA since these two states have passed resolutions against the amended citizenship law.
