LDF has announced a human chain protest from Kasaragod to Thiruvananthapuram on January 26. The left front is also planning more protests in the coming days, it is learned.
The United Democratic Front (UDF) has planned elaborate protests against CAA. Leader of Opposition Ramesh Chennithala said that the Citizenship Amendment Act is against the nation’s interests and the Congress will continue to hold protests until its revoked.
