Despite the steadily-rising cases of the coronavirus in the country and the ban on gathering of more than 50 people in Delhi, protests by women against the CAA, NRC and NPR continue in Shaheen Bagh. 

Women have been protesting here since December 15, 2019. On Tuesday too, a large number of people participated in the protest. Shaheen Bagh protesters are not ready to move from the protest site and they say that they will leave the site only when the CAA is revoked.

Meanwhile, protests and strikes against the CAA, NRC and NPR, going on in Chennai’s Shaheen Bagh, have been postponed for the time being on account of the coronavirus.

Protests and strikes on the lines of Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh had begun in Chennai a few days after the protests started in Delhi.

The number of coronavirus patients in the country has now increased to 147, out of which while three people have died so far, 14 have recovered and gone back home.
