Former Union Minister, Yashwant Sinha has recently launched a 3,000-kms march, which will start from Mumbai and will end in New Delhi. This march is said to be against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the withdrawal of it along with condemning the “state-sponsored violence” across the country, creating an environment of terror.

This march will be called as “Gandhi Shanti Yatra” and it will cross five states, namely- Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Haryana before ending it in New Delhi’s Rajghat on January 30, the day on which Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated.

As we are aware, that protests are already being held since last month when the new citizenship act was declared by the government.

According to CAA, for the first time in India, religion will be the base of giving citizenship to people. According to the government, it will help the minorities from three Muslim dominated countries namely- Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, to get citizenship if they fled to India because of religious persecution. Whereas, critics say that this act is designed to discriminate against Muslims and hence, violates the secular principles of the constitution of India.

Meanwhile, a citizen’s march also took place today at Mandi House at 12 noon, which was against CAA, National Register of Citizens (NRC), National Population Register (NPR) and the violence which is taking place in different universities across India.

Also, the students’ union of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) too held a protest today at their campus main gate against the violence which took place on January 5, in which masked goons entered the varsity and attacked the students and teachers as well.
