Congress wakes up

Earlier in the day, former Congress President Rahul Gandhi also tweeted and called on the public, especially the youth to stand up against the hatred. Taking a subtle dig at PM Narendra Modi, he said that it is not enough to "feel India" and that the youth should "show that you are Indian."

The protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act started since the time it was still being debated in the Parliament and the resentment spread from North East India to the rest of the country, leading to severe clashes between the police and the citizens. The Congress party members have supported the protests in regions, but the 'high command' of the Congress party has not been a big part of the protests. Priyanka Gandhi has held dharnas but that did not drive any momentum, whereas Rahul Gandhi was yet again outside the country throughout the week.

The protests have also led to the suspension of internet and cellular services in the national capital and imposition of Section 144 to maintain law and order.
