Assam witnesses anti-CAA protest ahead of PM Modi’s visit
Protests unfolded in Assam against the implementation of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s scheduled visit on Saturday. Members of the Coordination Committee against CAA, Assam, organized a rally at Guwahati’s Lakhidhar Borah Khetra.
Notable figures including Sahitya Academy Award-winning writer Hiren Gohain and other eminent citizens from various fields participated. Protesters demanded the withdrawal of CAA, claiming that it discriminates against a specific religious group.
The Coordination Committee, formed in 2019 following the passage of the CAA, has been actively organizing protests against the law for the past four and a half years.
