The All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union (AAPSU) and North East Students’ Organisation (NESO) observed black day on Saturday to convey to the nation that they oppose the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), 2019. NESO, which is an umbrella organisation of eight major students’ bodies of seven northeastern Indian states, has declared that December 11 will be remembered as a black day for the entire Northeast. The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill was passed in Parliament on December 11, 2019, amid protests. The objective of the CAA is to grant Indian citizenship to persecuted minorities – Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Buddhist, Parsi and Christian – from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan.
