Maharashtra Bandh today in protest against CAA, NRC . In order to protest against the amended Citizenship Act, (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC), the Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi (VBA) has called for a Maharashtra bandh today (January 24). The protests are also against the ‘wrong’ economic policies of the centre, the VBA had said. While speaking to the media, VBA leader Prakash Ambedkar had earlier alleged the country witnessed unrest over the CAA, which the Centre was trying to implement. “The country is on the path of economic bankruptcy. Due to demonetisation and GST, coupled with an atmosphere of mistrust in the country, the government is not getting revenue. The economic policies of the Centre are wrong,” he alleged.”Everyone should oppose the Union government move to implement CAA and NRC and extend support to the bandh. Our intention to call a bandh is to make people aware of the country’s current weak economy,” Ambedkar had said at a press conference.
