Accordingly mamata banerjee continued her fight against citizenship amendment act on the streets of kolkata on thursday, as the West bengal government celebrated freedom fighter Netaji subhash chandra Bose's birth anniversary. Meanwhile invoking Bose's ideas and his criticism of the hindu Mahasabha, the West bengal cm said, "Netaji fought for united india, but now efforts are on to oust those who follow secularism. Netaji Subhash chandra bose while addressing a public meeting in Jhargram on 12 May, 1940, had criticised the hindu Mahasabha, these thoughts are very much relevant today".
Furthermore Mamata has been protesting against caa since over a month, and has held various programmes against the law that seeks to make religion the basis of fast-tracking citizenship procedure for refugees. Reiterating that the caa, the NPR and the NRC won't be allowed in West bengal, Mamata said before forcing any citizen out of the state, the bjp "has to throw her out" first. "Due to the NRC in assam, lakhs of Gorkhas have been rendered homeless. We will not allow that to happen in darjeeling as long as I am here". Mamata said that agitations must continue till the contentious law is revoked by the central government.
Moreover the TMC supremo also slammed the saffron party for making references to pakistan, which she said is a ploy to divert public attention from issues like economic slowdown and growing unemployment.
