Centre Says Ready To Talk To Shaheen Bagh Protesters
Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad today said the Central government is ready to talk to Shaheen Bagh protesters — mainly women camping at Kalindi Kunj-Shaheen Bagh stretch against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) and the proposed National Register of Citizens (NRC).
“Government is ready to talk to protesters of Shaheen Bagh but then it should be in a structured form and the Narendra Modi government is ready to communicate with them and clear all their doubts they have against CAA,” the minister tweeted.
Shaheen Bagh falls in the Okhla constituency. The area has become the epicenter of anti-CAA protests in the national capital.
The anti-CAA protests at Shaheen Bagh, on a stretch of a main road on Kalindi Kunj side, have been going on for nearly 50 days in south Delhi. The protesters have been demanding repeal of the CAA.
Delhi CEO Ranbir Singh on Friday had visited the Shaheen Bagh area to assess the situation and preparedness ahead of the assembly elections, and said there is no obstruction in areas where poll activities will be conducted on February 8.
