    Commuters Face Hardships As Buses, Autos, Cabs Go Off Road In Guwahati

    On the evening of December 11th, 2019, the streets of Guwahati heaved with thousands of seething protesters prompting the administration to deploy the army

    Commuters in Guwahati are facing harrowing time as several private and cluster buses, cabs, tempos, taxis, and autorickshaws remained off the roads a day after the city witnessed ‘war like’ protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2019.

    Educational institutes across the city remained closed as curfew was imposed in the city for an indefinite period. App-based cabs also remained off the roads from the evening of December 11th, 2019 as the internet was suspended for 24 hours in 10 districts of Assam.

    The protest which started from 11 am on December 11th, 2019 continued late into the night, disrupting traffic massively across the city. Public and private vehicles moving in and out of the city were stranded for several hours.

    Many people were seen walking down the deserted GS Road with luggage bags. Thousands of commuters including office-goers were stranded following the protest in Guwahati.

    On the evening of December 11th, 2019, the streets of Guwahati heaved with thousands of seething protesters prompting the administration to deploy the army. The students took to the streets, broke police barricades, and lit bonfires on the roads in protest against the Bil which was passed by the Rajya Sabha on December 11th, 2019.

    Police had to resort to lathi-charge, tear gas shelling, using water cannons and baton-charged protesters. The entire stretch of the GS Road became a sort of a battleground as thousands of 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. As tyres, logs and woods were lit, ‘Aahoi-aah, ulai aah (Come one, come all), ‘Joi Aai Axom (Hail Mother Assam)’, the iconic anthem of the Assam Agitation, rent the air.

    Security deployments have increased in many places including Guwahati following the violent protests. Two columns of the army, have been deployed in Guwahati.  Commando Battalions have also been deployed with fire tenders.
