West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee took part in a rally against the Citizenship Act and the National Register of Citizens in Kolkata on Monday. She was joined by hundreds of supporters who marched from a statue of Dr BR Ambedkar on Red Road to Jorasanko Thakurbari - the childhood home of Rabindranath Tagore, NDTV reported.

Speaking at the rally, Banerjee commented on the trend of branding people as “anti-nationals”.

“No NRC, no CAB. We want peace,” Banerjee said.

West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar tweeted that he was “extremely anguished” that Banerjee and her allies spearheaded the rally.
