The All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) will observe December 11 as a ‘Black Day’ in protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
This decision of the AAPSU is in response to the call of Northeast Students’ Union (NESO) to observe December 11 as ‘Black Day’ as part of its continued protest against the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
“The protest against CAA across the Northeast, including Arunachal is a grim reminder of the injustice the central government had meted out to the people of this region,” the AAPSU said.
The AAPSU further added that the protest is a reminder to the BJP-led Central Government that in a democratic setup, it is about the feelings of the people it governs.
Notably, NESO chairman Samuel Jyrwa had said, “NESO has decided that there will be a display of black flags and black banners in all important places of seven Northeast States.”
Jyrwa further said that observing December 11 as a ‘Black Day’, will send a strong message to the Centre that the people of Northeast are still against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
It was on December 11 last year that the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) was passed by the Parliament.
