Titabar is the constituency of three-time Chief Minister of Assam, Tarun Gogoi, who won for the fourth time in the State Assembly elections held in 2016.
Activists belonging to several organisations showed black flags and shouted slogans against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill when Tasa was laying a foundation stone for construction of a road under Titabar Municipal Board at Station Tiniali at Titabar town.
The protesters later got involved in an argument with Tasa over the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill and decried his support to the Bill.
Jorhat MP Tasa later attended another programmes under Titabar Civil Sub-division.
It may be mentioned that protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill continues unabated across Assam.
Most of the organisations and political parties in Assam have been protesting against the Bill which amends the Citizenship Act, 1955 to make illegal migrants who are Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan, eligible for citizenship.
The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 which was passed in Lok Sabha recently, requires for citizenship by naturalisation is that the applicant must have resided in India during the last 12 months, and for 11 of the previous 14 years.
The Bill also relaxes the 11-year requirement to six years for persons belonging to the same six religions and three countries.
The Assam BJP leaders including Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and Assam BJP president Ranjeet Kumar Dass have also faced black flag protests by activists on several occasions for their support towards the Bill.
However, the Bill is yet to get Rajya Sabha nod.
