Guwahati, January 8, 2019:

Observing a 12-hour bandh announced by the North East Students Organization (NESO), KMSS and several other organizations, supporters of the bandh took to the streets to protest against the amendment of the controversial Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB). The activists burned tyres, vandalized cars and shouted slogans to save the indigenous “Axomiya Jati” and the ethnic groups of Assam from being affected by the implementation of the controversial Bill.

Tire burning was also witnessed in many areas. The activists came out from every nook and corner of Assam and while some waved black flags to condemn the Modi-led BJP government, others came out with “hengdang” to save Assam and the Assamese jati from the Jati-destroying Citizenship Amendment Bill.


AASU supporters came out to the streets and vandalized the BJP office at Golaghat and also burnt a picture of the late Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
