Senior TMC leaders, ministers and elected representatives today conducted rallies in various parts of the state wearing black badges.
"In the name of NRC, they (BJP government in Assam) have deliberately omitted the names of Bengalis and other communities from the list. This is really shameful and we condemn it," TMC Secretary General Partha Chatterjee said.
The complete draft of the NRC was published on July 30 in Assam with 2.89 lakh names out of 3.29 applicants. Over 40 lakh people did not make it to the list.
The TMC exempted Kolkata from the demonstrations today owing to BJP national president Amit Shah's public meeting in the city.
The TMC will organize protest rallies in Kolkata tomorrow.
