In Assam, the protest will begin from morning 11 am and will be joined by members from various students’ organisation of the state.
Even though the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has the majority in Parliament, various organisations of the region have said that they would not continue protesting the proposed bill.
The BJP-led union government plans to introduce CAB in the winter session of the Parliament, which begins from Monday and continues till December 13.
“Our stand is very clear that protesting against the CAB is a fight for our identity. We will oppose it at any cost, even by shedding our blood,” Gogoi said while addressing the media in Guwahati.
“We will also work towards uniting all the political parties and organisations against the contentious bill,” Gogoi added.
The proposed bill seeks to grant citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan after six years of stay in the country even if they do not possess proper documents.
