Guwahati: The CAA protests had rocked many parts of Assam. And now it seems that Assam’s JNU, or the premiere, “Cotton University” has come under the protest radar. The students at Cotton University demand Assam’s exemption from the controversial CAA act.
Earlier it was noted that students of seven universities and colleges had a joint protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act at the Guwahati campus on Wednesday. The students also attacked the divisive policies initiated by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and vowed to continue their agitations against the act.
The widespread protests had caused such a stir that the University thought to cancel its examination to avoid any unwelcomed circumstance.
An official message also stated that all end semester examinations of UG 1st and 3rd semesters, MCA 1st, 3rd and 5th semester and HS 2nd year and prefinal examinations are re-scheduled to be held in January 2020.
Assam has had a strong retaliation in terms of executing CAA in the state. The protest has captivated many artists and people of general milieu. On 31 December normal employees of the govt came out on streets and agitated against the bill they too had worn a black badge. Protests grew intense in Assam. After the announcement of the bill, at least 4 people have been reported dead amidst widespread protests.
