Citizens of Manipur who are working in different field including entrepreneurs, film makers, photographers, journalist, businessmen, teachers, students etc., today continue to show solidarity to the anti-CAB (CAA) uprising in Assam and Tripura. The solidarity stand began since yesterday with around 20 people but the number of people grows triple today. Many joined the solidarity stand with placards opposing Contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Act. All participants came and joined by themselves to support the cause of the people of Assam and Tripura besides opposing CAA. No organizations or civil bodies are involved in the solidarity stand but all came by their own and joined the solidarity stand.

At around 11 am the people started gathering and standing near Western Kangla Gate showing solidarity to the people of Assam and Tripura who are engaging in fierce protest against the Contentious CAA. As the people gathering near Western Kangla Gate started displaying small placards with slogans supporting the cause of anti-CAA protesters in Assam and Tripura and also opposition to CAA, a police team who were deployed at the area forced them not to display the placards. The citizens gathering instead of confrontation put the placards inside and remain in the site praying for NE states and those victims who had lost their live during the protest against CAB/CAA in Assam and Tripura.

Later at around 12 noon, the people gathered maintained a 2 minutes silence as a mark of respect to the departed souls during anti-CAA agitation in Assam and Tripura.

The citizens then moved toward Khwairamband Ima Keithel and staged a demonstration for the same cause using placards. Some passerby without hesitation also joined the demonstration on their will, after staging for around 20 minutes the people then moved towards Cheirap Court and staged a silent and peaceful demonstration.

The protest is likely to continue in the coming days until a final solution to the problem of the North East states on the issue of CAA has been brought.
