New Delhi: Responding to Union home minister Amit Shah’s comment in a TV event that anyone having doubts over CAA could seek an appointment from his office and he would be willing to meet them, protesters at Shaheen Bagh on Saturday announced to meet him on Sunday at 2.00 pm.
A section of protesters sitting at Shaheen Bagh said that they would be going to meet Mr Shah at his residence to request the government to withdraw the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and NRC (National Register of Citizens).
The protesters also clarified that they have not sought an appointment with the Union home minister. “Earlier this week, in a TV event Mr Shah said that anyone having doubts over CAA could seek an appointment from his office and he would be willing to meet the person within three days. Responding to his call, we have decided to meet Mr Shah and now we’re waiting for his response to our call,” said one of the protesters. The protesters also said that in case they failed to get an appointment with Mr Shah then after 2 pm on Sunday they will decide their future course of action.
A woman protester said that all the women would be going to meet the home minister on Sunday. “Everyone will go and meet the home minister at 2 pm on Sunday. It’s a request to all the citizens, including men and women who are facing problems due to CAA and NRC, to go and meet Mr Shah and the Prime Minister,” said an elderly woman.
The Delhi police, meanwhile, said that it has no information about the proposed meeting of protesters with Union home minister. The ministry of home affairs on Saturday said that no such meeting has been scheduled.
