The Congress in Assam will move on the streets to protest against the ‘controversial’ Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 (CAA) once the situation related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) improves and it becomes safer to go outside.
Leader of the Opposition in the Assam Assembly, Debabrata Saikia said that once the Covid-19 pandemic is over, the Congress will hit the roads to protest against the “unconstitutional” CAA).
Saikia said once the pandemic is over and it becomes all-ok-to-go-out, the Congress will protest against the unconstitutional CAA and all the other wrongs that the BJP-led government has been doing.
He further alleged that the government is using police for their political issues and is harassing the people who include Congress leaders and members of other regional organizations who are against the government’s unconstitutional stance.
Saikia claimed that these acts by the current government are pushing democracy and constitutional rights to a threat of being demolished.
Saikia added, “We ask the government to keep the democracy and constitutional rights of the people alive in the country.”
He added that since there is a pandemic outbreak, the Congress is now only focused to help the needy persons of the state and country and once things turn back to normal they will once again protest with “all spirit” against the CAA.
