By City Correspondent

GUWAHATI, Jan 11 - Reiterating their opposition to the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA), the students of Cotton University displayed a collection of photographs from the protests against the controversial Act in front of the university premises today.

A torchlight rally was also organised from the university premises to Dighalipukhuri and back this evening. More than a hundred students participating in the rally shouted anti-government and anti-CAA slogans.

�We have displayed more than a thousand photos of the student protesters here today. We want the government to realise the pains of the students during the month-long protest against the Act. There is no place for the illegal immigrants. We are continuously opposing it since its inception and we will continue with our protest till it is scrapped. We are taking other measures as well to oppose it. We will not let them succeed in their propaganda,� former general secretary of Cotton University Students� Union Pranjal Kalita said.

�The photos were displayed as part of our campaign �Saturday Against CAA� to protest against the newly-amended legislation and completion of one month of the anti-CAA agitation in the State. The campaign was launched on December 21,� Kalita added.

Praising the students for their opposition to the Act, Zubeen Garg wrote on his Facebook post, �It�s been more than a month of resisting, retaliating, revolting. They don�t listen. They don�t care. And we don�t give up. Students of Assam have shown the guts and dedication. We are with you.�

The students of Cotton University have been vehemently opposing the controversial Act since its inception by adopting a series of protests from hitting the street to sensitising the public about the negative impacts of the Act.

The students also burned effigies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah last night after announcement of enactment of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.
