Black flag protests continue in the state against the Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2016. People wearing black or carrying any black cloth on them were kept out of Janata Bhawan in Dispur from Friday.
The restriction was apparently meant to rule out any chance of a protest at the venue. Policemen were seen checking people for any piece of black cloth and anyone wearing a black shirt was not allowed in.
The ban order comes in the wake of the ongoing agitation across Assam for scrapping Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016.
The administration has banned entry of all black materials including black dresses to the Janata Bhawan here on Friday.
Anybody coming to the Janata Bhawan with any black material will not be allowed to enter the Janata Bhawan.
It may be mentioned that, almost all the senior leaders of Assam BJP including CM Sarbananda Sonowal had to face the wrath of public on their way.
