The protestors at Shaheen Bagh on Friday continued to raise their voice against the Citizenship Amendment Act
New Delhi: As the protest at Shaheen Bagh against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) entered day 35 on Friday, Delhi Police appealed to protestors to understand the inconvenience caused by the complete highway blockade to residents of Delhi and NCR, senior citizens, emergency patients and school-going children.
"We appeal to agitators at Road No. 13 A Shaheen Bagh to understand the sufferings that the complete highway blockade is causing to residents of Delhi & NCR, Senior Citizens, emergency patients and school going children," Delhi Police tweeted.
Protesters have installed a giant iron cut-out of India's map with the text stating "We the people of India reject CAA, NPR and NRC."
The Sikh community has also started 'langar seva' for the protesters and serves food twice a day.
Apart from that, people have also distributed fruits to demonstrators in a show of their support.
Announcements were made at the demonstration stating that protest was not backed or funded by any political party and "please don't give money to volunteers nor will they accept it".
The CAA grants citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Parsis, Buddhists and Christians fleeing religious persecution from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh and who came to India on or before December 31, 2014.
