  • Mamata Banerjee calls mega rally against new citizenship law

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday warned of strict action against people indulging in violence and appealed for calm.

West Bengal was on Saturday marred by violent protests staged against the Citizenship Act. "She is instigating masses to take law into their hands". Similar pleas were also made by Governor Jagdeep Dhakhar, who requested people not to violate law and order.

Railway equipment kept at Eastern Railway's Beldanga station was burnt by the protesters, who also damaged a fire brigade engine and set it afire. "Several parts of the station, RPF kiosks were set on fire and the tracks vandalised".

Immigration through Tamabil customs station in Gowainghat upazila of Sylhet came to a sudden halt after a curfew was imposed in Meghalaya state. In Raghunathganj area of the district, the agitators set vehicles on fire and tore copies of the amended Act.

A huge police contingent was at the spot to control the situation, they said.

Announcing a series of protest programmes across the state from December 16-18, the CM also said that she has cancelled her visit to Delhi to attend a meeting on the 150th birth anniversary celebrations of Mahatma Gandhi.

The driver of the 12841 Howrah-Chennai Corommandel Express was injured as agitators hurled stones at the train, he said.

The National Highway 34, one of the main roads that connect north and south Bengal, was blocked in Murshidabad. Idris Ali, TMC MLA from Uluberia, said he was visiting Kolkata for medical reasons and would take stock of the situation on his return.

The indefinite curfew which was in force in Assam's Dibrugarh municipal area in view of the violent protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019, was relaxed for five hours on Friday even as a large number of protesters joined AASU's call for a 10-hour hunger strike in Chandmari area of Guwahati. In Kolkata, hundreds of protesters gathered at the Park Circus seven-point crossing, seeking the revocation of the law. "If the BJP government has chose to give them citizenship, what's wrong in it?"

Reports from South Eastern Railways suggests that most of the Odisha-bound trains are yet to leave Howrah station. Protesters poured out on the streets in Birbhum and East Midnapore, and shouted slogans against the BJP, demanding that the amended Act be immediately scrapped. Don't bring trouble to the people of Bengal.

"The stand of the Congress in any law that divides society will be the stand of the MP government", he said when asked if like West Bengal and Kerala, the Madhya Pradesh government too would reject the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill that was signed into law by President Ram Nath Kovind on Thursday.

The protests have been raging in the Northeast for the past three days over the citizenship act amendment through which the government seeks to fast-track the process of giving citizenship to persecuted religious minorities from three naighbouring countries: Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan.
