Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) has observed ‘black day’ against the forceful imposition of Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

The black day was observed on December 11 by the Naga Students’ Federation.

A press communication informed that NSF held a symbolic protest at Oking by hoisting black flag and also in front of various government offices at Kohima, where it pointed out that despite various exemptions made for the Northeast region in the act, North East Students’ Organisation (NESO) still felt that the act was anti-people.

NSF said that it would strive towards ensuring that that the act is not implemented.

The Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 (CAA) was passed by the Parliament on December 11, 2019. It amended the Citizenship Act, 1955 by providing a pathway to Indian citizenship for persecuted religious minorities from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan who are Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis or Christians, and arrived in India before the end of December 2014.
