Meghalaya Mahila Cong rally against CAB

By STAFF correspondent

SHILLONG, Dec 11 - The State Mahila Congress will take out a protest rally on Thursday against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill from the Fire Brigade Ground to the Additional Secretariat.

Leader of Opposition Mukul Sangma told media persons at the Congress Bhavan today the party would carry out demonstrations in protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in various forms.

Sangma said party members have started wearing black badges and urged people to do the same and also protest marches would be organised.

Dubbing the CAB as an �anti-national and anti-people Bill,� Sangma said that the Congress party is �shocked and surprised� over the stand taken by the National People�s Party.

He said the NPP �did a U-turn and betrayed the people� after Chief Minister Conrad Sangma tried to justify the Bill. The Opposition leader said the Congress wants stronger laws to protect the indigenous people against illegal influx.

Sangma said there has been a strong protest against the Bill across the region while touching on the current situation in Assam and said the State cannot be considered in isolation. �What happens in Assam affects all of us,� he added.
