Hours after being denied permission to maintain a assembly inside the Calcutta University(CU) allegedly at the behest of the Trinamool Congress Government, JNU students’ union president Aishi Ghosh on Thursday led a huge students rally in north Kolkata protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act and National Citizenship Register.
Mainly partaken with the aid of the Left students the procession had no flags keep the Tri-colour and used to be joined by way of a giant quantity of civil society members. Even as Ghosh and different pupil leaders like Mayukh Biswas led the rally senior Left Front leaders like Surya Kanto Mishra and Biman Bose walked quietly in the rear.
Ghosh later said that the Mamata Banerjee Government should first decide whose purpose it was buttressing via refusing to provide her permission to tackle meetings.
“We had assembled here to tackle a assembly of students against the divisive policies of RSS and BJP who have slapped the discriminatory CAA and are planning to invoke NRC and NPR. We hear that they (TMC) too has been strongly protesting towards CAA and NRC. If that be so then they had no commercial enterprise denying the permission to keep a assembly internal the university. They (Trinamool) first determine as to whom they are assisting and for whom they are standing in Bengal.”
Another rally of Ghosh had been denied permission at Durgapur on Wednesday. Sources also stated that the police have refused to grant permission for a 0.33 rally scheduled to be addressed by way of Ghosh at Jadavpur.
