CAA-NPR-NRC के ख़िलाफ़ जाफ़राबाद की मुख्य सड़क पर सैकड़ों की संख्या में प्रदर्शनकारी इकट्ठा हो गए हैं, जिनमें बहुत बड़ी संख्या में महिलाएँ हैं। इनका कहना मजबूरन इन्हें सड़क पर बैठना पड़ा है क्योंकि केन्द्र की मोदी सरकार पर कई दिनों से चल रहे इनके प्रदर्शन का कोई असर नहीं पड़ा।Posted by NewsClick.in on Saturday, February 22, 2020

In the Jaffrabad area, over two thousand people gathered just below the metro station, waving flags and shouting slogans. The protest which began late on Saturday night continues as of filing this report. The sheer number of protesters forced the police to push back their barricades. One of the protesters, speaking to Newsclick, urged the government and the Prime Minister to listen to the voices and sentiments of the thousands of people gathered there on the issue of the CAA, NRC and NPR and take the necessary action. The entry and exit gates of the Jaffrabad metro station were closed after the protest broke out.
