AJYCP-led protest over citizenship

The citizenship row in Assam seems to have spilled to New Delhi with more and more pressure groups from the north eastern region have reached the national capital to escalate the protest.

AJYCP is leading a vociferous protest with active support from a few other organizations in the capital on Monday in protest against the move to amend the Citizenship Act, 1955 facilitating the Hindu Bangladeshi nationals to settle in the region where only Assam will have to bear the brunt.

Talking to Assam Times in New Delhi, AJYCP president Biraj Kumar Talukdar said that the protesters would stage the demonstration at the Jantar Mantar at 11 in the morning opposing the move that would turn Assam into a haven of Bangladeshi nationals.

He said a number of New Delhi-based Naga Students Association, Manipur Students Union, Tripura Students Association have confirmed their participation in the demonstration.
