Assam University bans protest after BJP leader’s threats on anti-Citizenship Bill protests

Assam University authorities banned protests inside the campus without prior permission after BJP leader’s threats on anti-Citizenship Bill protests.

Assam University Registrar Dr Sanjib Bhattacharjee directed that no procession/dharna or any sort of gathering of people within the campus without prior approval of the authorities is strictly prohibited until further order on Saturday.

Protests against the Bill, however, continued across Assam, mostly by the students community.

The BJP leader Dutta’s threat came after a section of students of the University on Thursday came out in support of the Citizenship Amendment Bill, while another had taken out a candlelight vigil on Wednesday to protest against it.
