Teok All Assam Students’ Union (AASU), artists’ fraternity, and several other organisations under the aegis of Jorhat AASU staged a protest against the CAA on Silpi Divas on Friday near Teok Hospital Tiniali.

Signifying how CAA has strangulated Assam, artists drew murals in which a python was seen squeezing the map of Assam.

Wall paintings also depicted how the peace-loving people of Assam began a movement, which witnessed bloodshed.

To depict this, a stabbed pigeon with blood dripping from its body and flowing to a red river was drawn.

The drawings were done by Nabajyoti Konwer and students of Teok Jatiya Vidyalaya.

Singers Ashok Bora, Barnali Chutia and Binod Vauqulin sang songs of patriotism and nationalism.
