Anti-CAA protest at Shaheen Bagh: Protest over the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) and National Register is continuing across the national capital. However, the regular outburst of agitators has disrupted the daily routine of South East Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh area residents. Keeping in view, Delhi Police on Friday appealed the protestors to decongest the Kalindi Kunj-Shaheen Bagh area.
The Road No 13-A, is the area linking between Noida and Delhi. A month-long protest has added sufferings to the Delhi and NCR residents, senior citizens, emergency patients and school children.
The Shaheen Bagh area is a connecting road that has been closed by the Noida Traffic Police.
Matter had also come to the notice before the High Court, earlier. Now, Delhi Police have again urged the protesters to cooperate by unblocking the road in the larger public interest.
Since December 15, 2019, the Kalindi Kunj-Shaheen Bagh stretch of road no. 13, of the national capital after protestors had occupied the road following the police clampdown on Jamia Millia Islamia students on the campus.
The on-going protest has gathered a significant amount of crowd across various cities in regards to CAA and NRC. People from all walks of life are expressing their disapproval of the same.
The new CAA bill promises citizenship to members of six non-Muslim communities from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh refugees who entered India before December 31, 2014. A massive protest was erupted due to the exclusion of the Muslim community and also stirred a debate over the constitutionality over the bill.
Traffic was also then diverted to other routes resulting troubles in the commutation from Noida.
