Left parties create Human Chain to protest CAA and NRC

Patna, Jan 25 (UNI) Left parties in Bihar created Human Chain to protest Citizenship
Amendment Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC), accusing Narendra
Modi government to divide society on the basis of religion which would disturb peace
and amity.
The Human Chain was created by workers and supporters of left parties from
Buddha memorial park to Gandhi Maidan in Patna. Those participated in Human
Chain also displayed placards with anti CAA and NRC slogans on it. On calls
made by left parties, Human Chain was also created in other districts of Bihar
besides state capital.
Subhashini Ali, CPI(M) polit bureau member, Arun Kumar Mishra and Sarvoday
Sharma, members of state secretariat committee of CPM, General Secretary of
CPI(ML) Deepankar Bhattacharya, state secretary of CPI (ML) Kunal, state secretary
of CPI Satyanarayan Singh and leaders of Hindustani Aawam Morcha (HAM) and
RLSP were also part of Human Chain created in Patna to protest CAA and NRC.
Leaders addressing the participants of Human Chain, said that both CAA and
NRC were serious threats to constitution and citizenship of the people in the country.
In Assam, NRC was rolled out but it left 56,000 labourers from Bihar on brink of
losing citizenship there but Nitish Kumar government did not take any action to
protect their interest, they alleged.
"Government should give the guarantee of protecting citizenship of the people in
the country," leaders demanded and added that on the pattern of Kerala, a similar
resolution should also be passed in Bihar assembly against CAA, NRC and National
Population Register.
