BENGALURU: While the whole world is facing fears regarding the pandemic coronavirus, a group of women continued their anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in Bangalore's Bilal Bagh. 

"I am not scared of Coronavirus. Even if I fall sick and if that it is such a big issue, first annul the CAA and National Register of Citizens (NRC)," said a lady protestor.

She further said that the government can arrange for their protection if they care so much about their safety. "Remove the CAA and the NRC, we will go back to our homes and relax. Do not subject us to the difficulties like that of Assam," she added. 

All the protestors present appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah to annul the NPR and CAA. 

The women, who were numbering around 50, are wearing masks due to the novel COVID-19 and also are maintaining the distance between each other. They have also sanitized and fumigated the site of the protest.
