GUWAHATI: A protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill-2016 was raised by the organizations of Assam Mahila Sangha, Sodou Axom Pragatisil Nari Sangstha and Nikhil Bharat Ganatnatrik Mahila Samiti, here in the city on Saturday.
The organizations held a procession in demand for the withdrawal of the Bill. In a press meet, the organizations declared, “The government through the Bill is tempering with the emotions of the people of the state.”
The collective protests are towards the government to stop dividing people in the name of religion. “The secular character of the constitution should be honoured”, they demanded. The organizations have also urged that the protestors, against whom Sedition cases were charged, should be revoked.
