NESO calls for Northeast bandh on Dec 10 in protest against CAB
GUWAHATI | Dec 6, 2019:
The Northeast Students' Organization (NESO) has called for an all-Northeast bandh on December 10 from 5 am to 4 pm in protest against the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB), 2019. Emergency services are exempted from purview of the bandh.
The organisation, which comprises of students' unions from across the northeast said that the bandh is their call for action against the intention of the Central Government of India to implement the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB).
Incidentally, the draft bill will be placed before the Parliament on December 10.
Reiterating their stand on CAB, NESO said that they want the entire region to be exempted from the bill and not just the ILP states or areas that come under Sixth Schedule.
