The Trinamool Congress today took out rallies in the city against the complete draft of the National Register of Citizens (NRC).
Protest marches were organised at Esplanade in the heart of the metropolis and in other places, including one at Kamarhati in the northern part.
The ruling party had organised similar rallies in different parts of West Bengal yesterday, barring the state capital.
The TMC has alleged that in the name of the NRC, the BJP government in Assam had deliberately omitted names of Bengalis from the list, a claim which has been denied by the saffron party.
