Tejashwi Yadav says several people lose IDs during floods, calls for Bihar bandh
Patna : Rashtriya Janta Dal protesters were seen blocking the highways, railway tracks and shouting slogans against the Citizenship Bill and proposed National Register of Citizens (NRC) in at least two places in Bihar.
Tejashwi Yadav called for Bihar bandh (Close) against the Citizenship Bill and asked the people to support him by not opening the shops.
“In protest against CAA and NRC, the RJD will be leading a Bihar bandh on December 21. On its eve, the party carried a torch rally in all districts to give a call for a peaceful protest,” the former deputy chief minister had tweeted on Friday.
As Tejashwi Yadav opposed the proposed NRC, he said people would not be able to prove their identity if it is implemented, as their identity documents often get washed away in the floods in the state.
"In Bihar, people’s documents flow away with floodwaters. How can they prove their identity?" Yadav had asked.
