BENGALURU: The anti-CAA/NRC protests do not seem to subside. While on Saturday evening, citizens descended near the Town Hall in thousands to protest against CAA-NRC, at the same event an Indian Air Force veteran, Itisha, read the Constitution despite the Bengaluru police trying to drive her away.

The sloganeering and plays by schoolchildren criticised the ruling BJP government for coming out with the Act, which they said was discriminatory on the lines of religion.

 

A protester, Firdaus, said that Mahatma Gandhi was shot with three bullets, and the three bullets – CAA, NPR and NRC – are putting the nation's foundation at risk.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi is only interested in his Mann ki Baat, but not citizens' Mann ki Baat. Anyone protesting against the government is labelled anti-national. They have called us puncture-wallahs. Yes, we are here to repair puncture as they have punctured the nation with economic slowdown,” she said. The protesters observed a 30-second silence for those who died during anti-CAA protests across the country.

Artist Varun Grover’s poem, Kaagaz Nahin Dikhayenge, was recited during the protests.

 

DCP (Bengaluru Central) Chetan Singh Rathore said that the permission to protest beyond 7 pm was not given since the protesters were not ready to sign a bond saying there would no breach of peace.
