Agency News

The protestors at Shaheen Bagh in Delhi have extended an invitation to the Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, to visit the protest site and celebrate Valentine's Day with them.

With hashtag '#TumKabAaoge', the post read, 'This Valentine, the people of Shaheen Bagh extend a heartfelt invitation to the Prime Minister to come to Shaheen Bagh and celebrate the festival of love, together'.

Posters, which can not only be seen at the protest site in south-east Delhi but are also being circulated widely on social media platforms, further said: 'PM Modi, please come to Shaheen Bagh, collect your gift and talk to us.'

It has been reported that since February 14, 2020, marks the first anniversary of Pulwama terror attack in which 40 CRPF jawans were killed, protesters preponed the invitation to February 13.

At Shaheen Bagh in south-east Delhi, protestors have been staging a sit-in agitation since December 15, 2019, calling for the withdrawal of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) and a proposed all-India National Register of Citizens (NRC).

The protestors have erected a tent on the main road connecting Noida with south-east Delhi via the Kalindi Kunj bridge, leading to huge traffic jams and hence eventually causing inconvenience to commuters.

Besides Shaheen Bagh, anti-CAA and anti-NRC protests have also been going on at Jamia Nagar, Zakir Nagar, Khureji Khas since December.
