  • The meeting is expected to give further direction to the opposition’s resistance to the three measures, although some Congress chief ministers have already said that their respective states will not implement NPR and NRC.

    West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee on Saturday met PM Modi and urged him to withdraw contentious new Citizenship Act, prompting Left students activists to protest against her and demand an explanation for diluting the fight against CAA. Banerjee termed her meeting as a "courtesy visit" and said she raised issues regarding the due financial assistance for the state.

    Congress president Sonia Gandhi has called a meeting of like-minded opposition parties on Monday to frame a joint action plan against the Citizenship Amendment Act and proposed National Register of Citizens, and discuss the political situation arising out of surging students protests across the country.

    A four-member TMC delegation, which was scheduled to meet the grieving families of those killed in Uttar Pradesh during protests over the new citizenship law, was "detained" at Lucknow airport on Sunday afternoon, party sources claimed.

    The BJP has firmed up its CAA campaign for West Bengal. It is focusing on holding workshops for cadre, parivar sammelans for Bengali families, boot camps to organise door-to-door campaigns, and identify civic groups and volunteers who can hold small meetings on the issue, senior BJP leaders told ET.

    Some state governments have raised concerns regarding compensation on the GST. The states had pegged the pending dues at around Rs 50,000 crore. In this regard, representatives from various states held a meeting with Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman earlier this month.

    The chief minister also said that she would begin with Kharagpur Sadar -- vacated by BJP state president Dilip Ghosh following his Lok Sabha win from Medinipur. TMC's Pradip Sarkar wrested Kharagpur Sadar seat from the BJP in last week's by-elections.
