Protesters condemn Modi's visit to Kolkata
January 12, 2020

In India, people took to streets to protest against the controversial citizenship law on the occasion of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Kolkata.            

Nearly 30,000 protesters chanting 'Go Back Modi' rallied in the city to tell Modi that he was unwelcome in Kolkata, the capital of West Bengal.           

Widespread street demonstrations, and occasionally deadly clashes, have gripped India since the Citizenship Amendment Act was passed by Parliament last month.

Meanwhile, talking to newsmen after her meeting with Narendra Modi, West Bengal state leader Mamata Banerjee said that she has asked Modi to repeal the law in larger interests of the country.
