The venue of the Indo-Japan summit, which is scheduled to take place in Guwahati from 15th December, may be shifted to somewhere else other than Assam beacuse of the continous protests against CitizenshipvBill.
The Ministry of External Affairs has not yet announced the official venue for the meet.
Official sources said the decision has been taken due to security reasons. It would not be “feasible” to welcome Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for the annual bilateral dialogue with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the strife-torn state.
Protests in Assam have turned so violent that the state government Wednesday imposed a curfew in various parts of Assam.
