To counter the central government’s recently framed Citizenship Amendment Act, All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) President Asaduddin Owaisi has announced to take part in a protest rally on December 29 in Bihar. The rally is scheduled to take place in Ruidhasa Maidan in Kishanganj. It has been reported that the rally will target the ruling Bhartiya Janta Party administration on issues like the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), National Register of Citizens (NRC) and National Population Register.
Bihar has recently vowed not to implement NRC when Chief Minister Nitish Kumar announced his decision, therefore the mobilization of the population of Bihar will be a crucial link in the state’s relationship with the Centre.

Previously, the AIMIM president had also called a mass public meeting at Darussalam on December 21 opposing the CAA legislation. Asadudding also shared a video byte of Home Minister Amit Shah‘s reply on NRC in the parliament. The leader also questioned the contradictory statement of Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Previously Congress party leaders and many others have too raised the mismatch between the statements of the two BJP leaders. Congress leader PL Punia said, “If there is no connection between NRC and NPR, why Amit Shah referred to NRC in the Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha debate.”
Today, Modi said there has been no discussion on nation-wide NRC and that lies are being spread to mislead us@PMOIndia who's lying? If @AmitShah is wrong, then it is breach of Parliamentary Privilege & a clear case of misleading the House
