The resolution appeals to the Union government to repeal the amended citizenship law and revoke plans to implement NRC and update NPR. State Parliamentary affairs minister Partha Chatterjee introduced the resolution in the House. Three states: Kerala, Rajasthan and Punjab, have already passed resolutions against the new citizenship law. The law has emerged as the latest flashpoint in the state, with the TMC opposing the contentious legislation tooth and nail, and the BJP pressing for its implementation.
