Silchar, January 20: A group of agitators on Sunday waved black flags and stripped half-naked staging a protest against Congress MP from Silchar and All India Women Congress President, Sushmita Dev in Madhurband.
The protesters lambasted the Congress MP for supporting the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016.
Slogans raised against the Bill and Dev rocked the Silchar region on Sunday. The agitators further burnt Dev’s effigy.
It may be mentioned that Assam is on the boil over the Centre’s proposed Citizenship (Amendment) Bill. The Bill was passed at the Lok Sabha on January 8. It was however, stalled at the Rajya Sabha following strong opposition from the Congress and other parties.
