With thousands protesting across Assam demanding the withdrawal of proposed Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016, the Guwahati administration has slapped prohibitory orders banning the assembly of four or more people across the state capital.

The prohibitory orders, Section 144 of the CrPC, has been issued until further orders by the Guwahati West district Deputy Commissioner of Police, Harekrishna Nath and was made public on Thursday. The prohibitory orders will be effective in the entire West district of Guwahati.

The order comes in the wake of the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti-led (KMSS) 70 other organisations calling a state-wide protest against the bill. Members of these 70 organisations are expected to protest at the Janata Bhawan in Guwahati against the bill.

However, the state administration has denied the KMSS to hold the said rally. The leader of KMSS, Akhil Gogoi, has threatened to call a bandh if the state administration does not allow them to hold the scheduled meeting.
