The West Bengal government on Monday tabled a resolution against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act in the Assembly.

As per reports, state Parliamentary Affairs Minister Partha Chatterjee introduced the resolution in the House around 2 pm.

Three states - Kerala, Rajasthan and Punjab - have already passed resolutions against the new citizenship law.
