Tinsukia district of Assam has been leading by example when it comes to protesting against the recent amendment of the Citizenship Amendment Act that has sparked nationwide protests.
Today, a sea of protesters assembled at the Panitola area in Tinsukia, with protesters as far as the eye could see chanting slogans decrying the Sarbananda Sonowal-led BJP Government and demanding the immediate roll back of the contentious legislation.
Raising slogans against the Government, many indigenous organizations, as well as locals of Panitola took part in the massive rally against the CAA in the State. People from all genders and age groups took part in the protest - women, men, and youths all assembled to send out a clear message to the Government: that they would not accept the Bill-turned-Act at any cost.
Meanwhile, protests continue to rage against the legislation in Assam, as well as other parts of the country. Although the protests have turned violent in the other parts of the country, Assam has returned to a state of normalcy.
While UP protests have taken a violent turn, protests in West Bengal, Assam, Meghalaya, Maharashtra and Delhi were peaceful. Students’ bodies, women and other civil and social organisations have continued opposing the Citizenship act across the country.
