The home minister is on a visit to the state as the chief guest and is taking part in the festivities at Indira Gandhi Park in Itanagar.
As per reports, the dharna is being staged to “demonstrate abomination towards the egocentric decision of implementing CAA, 2019, thereby hurting the sentiments of indigenous people and atrocious handling of protestors of various universities during anti-CAA protests”.
Banners like 'Mota Bhai, go back', 'Respect Preamble', 'No need CAA' were displayed by protesters amid the heavy presence of security personnel in front of Mithun Gate in Itanagar.
