Activists of Diphu Regional Students’ Union along with local citizens took out a torchlight rally against CAA in Diphu on Saturday.

The rally began from Semson Sing Ingti Memorial Park, went through the market and back to the Park.

The protesters shouted slogans like “Narendra Modi Go Back”, “Inkalab Zindabad” and “Sarbananda Sonowal Husiyar”.

Diphu Regional Students Union general secretary Sorjon Hanse said, “We urge the parents to let allow their children to participate in the anti-CAA movement and take it forward.”

“If CAA is not repealed, it will destroy Assam completely. We cannot accept it,” Hanse added.

“Irrespective of the religion we should fight against CAA in unity and continue it till the Act is abolished,” he reiterated.

“The Assam government is holding peace meeting in various places across Assam. Instead of such meetings, let the PM Modi declare that the Act will not be implemented in Northeast,” he added.
