By City Correspondent

GUWAHATI, Dec 24 - Students of Lalit Chandra Bharali College, Pandu College, Pragjyotish College and the citizens of Nilachalpur, Maligaon today organised a protest demonstration against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019.

Nearly 200 protesters including senior citizens gathered at Maligaon High School field here at 11 am to express their resentment against the newly amended legislation.

Research scholar of Gauhati University Ridip Jyoti Kalita, actor Baikuntha Prince, state secretary of the All Assam Unnayan Parishad Anup Jyoti Saikia, AASU�s executive committee member Simanta Thakuria and others were present during the protest.

A tribute-paying programme was also organised for those who lost their lives in police firing during the recent anti-CAA protests.

Around 1 pm, a protest rally was taken out from the field to the Lalit Chandra Bharali College premises.

Simanta Thakuria said, �We have to show our unity to the Central government through various agitational programmes. I wish to send out a clear message to them that here in Assam not a single community or religion is protesting against the Act, but public from all spheres have joined the anti-CAA protest. We will not stop till it is scrapped.�

�We will continue with our protest without compromising our daily activity. The government is trying to divert the attention of the public from the agitation by announcing various schemes, but it will not work,� said Abhijit Chakravarty, a student of LCB College.

Meanwhile, hundreds of people including elderly persons took part in a sit-in-demonstration against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act at Baghorbari Lower Primary School playground here on Monday. The protest was held under the aegis of the Baghorbari Asomi Mahila Samiti.
