Congress Leader Deplaned, Assam Cops At Delhi Airport, Protest On Tarmac

On Tuesday, a group of Assam police officers were deplaned from a Delhi-bound flight at the Guwahati airport after they were found to be carrying placards and banners to protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

The incident occurred when the officers, who were travelling to Delhi to attend a meeting of the All India Congress Committee (AICC), were stopped by the airport security personnel. The officers were carrying placards and banners that read “No CAA, No NRC” and “We Stand With Assam”.

The security personnel asked the officers to put away the placards and banners and when they refused, they were asked to deplane. The officers were then taken to the airport police station and questioned.

The incident has sparked outrage among the Congress leaders in Assam, who have accused the BJP-led government of trying to suppress the voices of dissent.

Congress leader and former Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said that the incident was a “blatant violation of the fundamental rights of the citizens”. He also accused the BJP-led government of trying to “muzzle the voices of dissent”.

The incident has also sparked protests at the Delhi airport, with Congress workers staging a protest on the tarmac. The protesters were demanding the release of the Assam police officers and an apology from the government.

The incident has once again highlighted the growing tension between the BJP-led government and the opposition parties in Assam over the CAA. The CAA has been widely opposed by the people of Assam, who fear that it will lead to an influx of illegal immigrants from Bangladesh.

The incident has also raised questions about the security measures at the Guwahati airport and the government’s attitude towards dissent. It remains to be seen how the government will respond to the incident and the protests.
