Prohibitory orders have in issued in several parts of Delhi on Thursday ahead of two mega rallies by students and activists over the Citizenship (Amendment) Act as well as the police crackdown on students of Jamia Millia Islamia and the Aligarh Muslim University.

While hundreds of protestors from Jamia, JNU and Delhi University, who have been holding protests since Sunday, began their march against the new law in the Red Fort, defying CrPC section 144 imposed there by the Delhi Police. Left parties will hold a joint march at Mandi House in central Delhi in the noon.

Police has however, denied permission to all these groups.

According to the police, the permission for the protest march was denied due to law and order traffic issues. Sixteen metro stations around central Delhi have also been closed by the DMRC.

However, a functionary of the All India Students’ Association (AISA) said the group will go ahead regardless.

People from all walks of life are tweeting their support for the march and many are updating their status saying they are on their way to join it.

The students’ march and the Left protestors are expected to converge at Shaheed Park near ITO.
