Amid Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016 Bill protest gaining momentum in Assam, students of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay carried out a protest rally at the premier institute on Saturday.
The students from North East staged a protest at the IIT campus against the Citizenship (Amendment Bill) 2016. The students demanded withdrawal of the bill which, once implemented would nullify Assam Accord and National Register of Citizens of India (NRC).
The present government is turning a blind eye to these democratic voices and protests even at the cost of dismantling the constitutional secularism and democratic value of our country, said Northeast Collective (NEC), student body IIT Bombay. The student body appeal to every conscious citizen of India to oppose this Bill.
They also cautioned the government to face the backlash once the bill is implemented.
