Anti-CAB protests continue in Garo Hills

By Correspondent

TURA, Dec 11 - The protests against the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill today reached the house of Tura MP Agatha Sangma with students questioning the assent given by the MP to the Bill.

Anti-CAB protests also rocked the South Garo Hills district with rallies being held at Gasuapara and Baghmara. While the rally at Gasuapara was led by local NGOs, the GSU and the Congress spearheaded the movement at Baghmara.

In Tura, more than 600 students, mostly from the Tura Government College led by the FKJGP cell in the college and ASWA from the Chandmari playground to the house of Agatha at Walbakgre. Students from the Don Bosco College and the Durama College were also part of the rally today.

The rally was coordinated by the FKJGP, GSU, AYWO and ADE.

�We are very unhappy with the stance of the Tura MP on the matter and are completely against the Bill. We condemn her betrayal of the Garos and want the Modi-led NDA Government to completely scrap the Bill,� said general secretary of the FKJGP, Raksrang Sangma.

The rallyists protested on bikes and cars which reached the residence of Sangma. The MPYC burnt effigies of the Tura MP in front of her residence last night.

The protesters also held a meeting at the Chandmari playground, which was chaired by the co-chairman of the FKJGP.

The procession moved through the William Point, DC Office and Tura Bazaar, and returned to the William point.

�The rally was also attended by people from Tura. We wanted to express our resentment against the passage of the CAB in the Lok Sabha. This act of betrayal by the Tura MP will not be easily forgotten,� added Manseng Sangma, NESO additional general secretary, who was also part of the bike rally.
