She said, “A mega rally will be held today in Kolkata to protest against unconstitutional CAB Bill and NRC. It will begin at 1 pm near the statue of Babasaheb Ambedkar on Red Road and end at Jorasanko Thakurbari. Come, let us all, every section of society, join this people’s movement in a peaceful manner within the ambit of the law.” WB CM: Only BJP will remain here&everyone else will be made to leave-it’s their politics. It’ll never happen. India is everyone’s. Agar sabka sath nahi rahega toh sabka vikas kaise hoga? Who is the #CitizenshipAct for? We’re all citizens.
