“Curfew to be imposed in Tinsukia from 8 pm on Saturday to 5 am on Sunday,” District Magistrate said.
In Tinsukia, a peaceful rally was taken out against the new law from Chandmari village in the morning. Holding placards against the CAA, the protestors chanted slogans against the government and demanded to take back the act.

Sonowal further stated that “Assam will remain with the Assamese people.”
“For this, whatever legislation is required, we will bring those.
He said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah have assured people of Assam that all adequate measures will be taken to get Clause 6 of Assam Accord implemented.
