“I will again appeal to the honourable Prime Minister to intervene so that peace is restored in the country, which is now on fire. This is needed to ensure every citizens’s right remains intact and is not snatched away at gunpoint,” Banerjee told the media here.
She urged the Prime Minister not to take the Citizenship Amendment Act as a matter of personal ego.
“A law is for everyone, so one should not be stubborn about a law which goes against the interest of the state. Withdraw the law so that the entire unrest ends,” she said.
According to Banerjee, people were agitated as they feel their existence is at threat. “They are worried over how they will live (in India),” she said.
