Protest continues at Roshan Bagh area of Allahabad against CAA, NRC

ALLAHABAD: A stir, being staged by the women protesters at Roshan Bagh locality against the CAA(Citizenship Amendment Act) and NRC (National Register of Citizen), continued on Saturday. It has been a week since this protest started.
The number of protesters were less during the morning, but as the weather improved, the number of protesters increased in the later half of the day.
Earlier, the women protesters continued to sit on the dharna all night through adverse weather conditions. The Mansoor Ali Park was jam packed with women protesters on Friday night. The barricaded area, which is kept for men, was also occupied by their female counterparts.
On Saturday, some of the protesters were seen holding posters with the slogans of ‘Inquilab Zindabad’ and ‘No NRC’ written with their blood.
There were reports of some argument between the Congress and Samajwadi Party members at the site, but the leaders of both parties denied it
“There has been continued support from all corners of the society. People are donating food, medicines etc,”said Irshad Ulla, district general secretary of Congress party.
The organisers have also installed CCTV cameras across the park to keep a close vigil on any troublemakers.
Meanwhile, Acharya Kushmuni Swaroop has condemned the protest saying that this is being supported by Pakistan. “There should be an inquiry on the dharna and find out who is financing for food and other logistics.”
