As North East India continues to oppose the passage of the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, agitators in Manipur burnt an effigy of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a market in Khetriga in Imphal East district.

The protest was staged under the aegis of Manipur Muslims Welfare Organisation. Sit-in protests were also staged in many parts of the state on Sunday. A team of 130 members of six students’ bodies– AMSU, MSF, DESAM, SUK, KSA and AIMS – left Imphal for New Delhi Saturday to stage a protest at the national capital, led by AMSU president Manjit Sarangthem.

Similar protest was witnessed in Mizoram, where thousands took to the streets on January 23 and burnt the effigies of Prime Minister Modi and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

Tripura: In Tripura hundreds of people Sunday took to the streets in protest against the passage of Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.

Tripura’s Royal Scion Pradyot Bikram Manikya Debbarma led the rally. Chants of “Poila Jati Ulo Party” reverberated in the state as people stood up against the passage of CAB.

Meghalaya: In Meghalaya, four NGOs of the Garo Hills-- GSU, FKJGP, ADE and AYWO under the banner of NESO Sunday held a public meeting against the CAB under the theme ‘Save Garo Hills, Save North East’. At the meeting attended by hundreds of people, the speakers took strong exception to the ‘second class’ treatment being meted out to the people of NE, especially the tribals of the region.
