Several organisations from Assam Monday staged protests, with some of the demonstrators stripping naked, outside Parliament against the central government’s move to amend the Citizenship Amendment Bill.

Carrying placards and raising slogans, about 10 protesters belonging to the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti from Assam stripped themselves naked to protest the controversial bill.

Within no time, police swung into action and removed the protesters from the highly secured Vijay Chowk.Another group of people protested outside the Assam Bhavan in Chanakyapuri, showing black flag and raising slogans. Four Rajya Sabha members of the Congress, led by APCC president Ripun Borah, also staged a protest outside the main gate of Parliament against the bill. Carrying banners and raising slogans, the Congress MPs demanded that the bill should not be brought in Parliament.

The Union Cabinet Monday cleared the redrafted Citizenship Amendment Bill, which seeks to provide Indian citizenship to non-Muslims from Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The bill is expected to be tabled in the Lok Sabha Tuesday. The move came within hours of the presentation in the Lok Sabha of a report of the Joint Parliamentary Committee examining the bill that was first introduced in Parliament in 2016.
