Cotton University Students Demand Scrapping of CAB
GUWAHATI: The students of Cotton University have sought immediate scrapping of the Citizenship Amendment Bill. Showing their resentment against the bill, the students have paated anti-CAB posters across the varsity campus on Monday, November 25.
The posters have been pasted on walls, trees which read ‘Cottonian opposes CAB’, ‘Withdraw CAB immediately‘, ‘Stop doing politics using students’, ‘Jatiya Nayak Hai Hai’, ‘BJP go back’, etc.
The university has been vehemently opposing the Bill since its inception by organising protest rallies to boycott classes.
The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill seeks to amend the Citizenship Act, 1955, and grant Indian citizenship to people from minority communities – Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians – from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan to escape religious persecution.
