    Army Conducts Flag March In Guwahati After Public Defy Curfew

    Commuters faced a harrowing time as vehicles were stranded in various cities of Assam due to heavy blockade following the fresh protests

    The Army conducted flag march as the people defied the curfew in Guwahati on the morning of December 12th, 2019 to protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2019. Assam continues to simmer as the protesters continue to stage demonstrations in the state.

    Guwahati, the epicentre of anti-Bill protests, was placed under indefinite curfew on the night of December 11th, 2019. The people were on the road in the night opposing the Bill despite the curfew. The Army was called in at four places and Assam Rifles personnel were deployed in Tripura on December 11th, 2019 as the two Northeastern states plunged into chaos over the Bill.

    Five columns, each column has 70 personnel, of the army, have been deployed in Assam. Three columns of Assam Rifles have been deployed in Tripura.

    On the other hand, the All Assam Student’s Union has called for a protest at 11 am in Guwahati. Peasant leader Akhil Gogoi-led Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti appealed to the people to stage a peaceful protest.

    Commuters faced a harrowing time as vehicles were stranded in various cities of Assam due to heavy blockade following the fresh protests. Vehicles were burnt at several places on December 11th, 2019. The houses of BJP and AGP leaders including Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal were attacked in various parts of the state.

    The entire stretch of the GS Road in Guwahati became a battleground as thousands of seething students of various educational institutes of Guwahati took to the streets and assembled in front of the Janata Bhawan as part of their ‘Dispur Chalo’ rally.

    The students were joined by people from various localities of the city as they marched ahead towards the secretariat. The protest continued late into the night, disrupting traffic massively across the city.

    The Rajya Sabha on December 11th, 2019 approved the Bill, completing the legislative procedure for giving Indian citizenship to non-Muslim migrants from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh.
