The Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Saturday took out rallies across the state in protest against the publication of the complete draft of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam.

Senior TMC leaders, ministers and elected representatives on Saturday conducted rallies in various parts of the state wearing black badges.

Holding placards, the TMC activists raised slogans against the BJP governments at the Centre as well as Assam.

"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 on Saturday owing to BJP national president Amit Shah's public meeting in the city.

The TMC will organize protest rallies in Kolkata on Sunday.
