The North East Students’ Organisation (NESO), a conglomerate of eight students union in the region has decided to observe ‘Black Day’ on December 11.
In a press release issued today NESO said, “We would like to remind the people of the North-East that on the December 11 2019, despite the relentless opposition of the indigenous people against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2019, the Government of India did not pay heed and through the Rajya Sabha passed the Draconian Law known as the Citizenship (Amendment) Act 2019.”
NESO said that black flags and black banners will be raised in all important places of all the seven states of the North East. “This observation is to give a message to the Government of India that we are against this Citizenship (Amendment) Act 2019 and also at the same time to remind our people and our posterior of yet another political injustice that the Government of India perpetrated on the indigenous peoples of the North East,” the student organisation said.
Urging people of the region to support the black day NESO said, “At the same we need to keep on fighting for the just cause of our God given right.”
