Students of Government Higher Secondary School in Imphal on Thursday announced boycotting the Republic Day and other national occasions as protests against Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016 continued unabated in Manipur.

“We have decided not to participate in the celebrations of Republic Day and Independence Day of India,” said N Nobinchandra, general secretary of student union of Johnston Higher Secondary School, Imphal, one of the oldest higher secondary in Manipur.

He alleged the present government at the Centre of attempting to eliminate the smaller ethnic people of Manipur and other Northeast states by granting citizenships to the migrants who entered into the region illegally.

Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016 was a mechanism to eliminate the ethnic people of the region, he said.

Chief minister should also find ways to prevent passage of the Bill by the Rajya Sabha instead of shouting against the bill, he said. 

Meanwhile, protests against the passage of Bill continued at different parts of the state. The protests were staged at Thangmeiband, Sagolband in Imphal West, Thoubal Keithel in Thoubal district and other parts of the state.
