The denizens of Assam, who are protesting the Government's move to enact the contentious (Amendment) Bill, have now lambasted BJP MP from Gauhati, Queen Ojha. Earlier in the afternoon on Tuesday, All Assam Students' Union (AASU) activists reached Ojha's residence, and raising slogans against the ruling BJP party, condemned the controversial Bill.
A sea of angry AASU protesters swarmed into Oja's residence and through yelled slogans, stated that they would not accept the CAB at any cost.
The protesters then went on to bring out an effigy of Queen Oja herself and set fire to the dummy. They then kept feeding the flames with BJP party flags. A sea of impassioned voices raising slogans against the Bill has also surrounded the Assam BJP headquarter in the Hengerabari locality in Guwahati city.
The demand to scrap the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, that was passed in the Lok Sabha at midnight, have been intensified, with several pressure groups urging the state Government to oppose it.
Meanwhile, the Union Home Ministry is planning to introduce the Bill in the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday, so that it can become a law.
The Bill that seeks to grant citizenship to non-Muslim migrants from majority Muslim countries Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, has sparked widespread protests across the Northeastern region.
