Picture by Damien LepchaHundreds of students representing several organisations of Arunachal Pradesh took to the streets on Monday to express their resentment and opposition against the Centre’s proposal to implement the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in the Northeast. The protest here was organised by the All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) under the banner of North East Students’ Organisation (Neso), a conglomeration of several student organisations of the region. The students who marched from the Indira Gandhi Park till Raj Bhavan here shouted slogans opposing the bill and demanded that the Centre revoke its decision, keeping in mind the interests of the indigenous population of the state and region.
