The city has been given a new look with fresh coats of paint on walls, road dividers and pavement railings ahead of the Indo-Japan Summit on December 15 next.

Moreover, the State Government is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that the city is thoroughly decked up ahead of the Indo-Japan Summit through the massive clean-up and beautification drive that is still underway.

Himanta on Monday shared a few pictures on his Twitter handle which showed anti-CAB slogans such as ‘No CAB’ ,’Oppose CAB’ written across the freshly painted walls of Guwahati.

He also asked whether these slogans were written out of ‘demonic joy ‘ or ‘democratic protest’.

Himanta tweeted:

‘Demonic joy or democratic protest?  Snapshots of anti-CAB slogans across freshly painted walls of Guwahati.’

It may be mentioned that raging protests have been going on across the nation against the controversial bill that proposes to grant Indian citizenship to non-Muslim refugees from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
