Members of the All Assam Students Union (AASU) showed black flags to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and shouted slogans against the Citizenship Bill as he travelled to Raj Bhavan from the airport after he arrived in the city on Friday evening.
Modi is on a two-day visit to the Northeast.
AASU members were seen waving black flags to the prime minister at Gauhati University gates as he passed the area on his way to the Raj Bhavan around 6.30 pm from Lokopriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport.
Another group of AASU members waved black flags as Modi's carcade whizzed past several minutes later at its headquarters on M G Road.
Slogans like 'Modi go back', 'Scrap Citizenship Amendment Bill', 'Joi Aai Asom' (Glory to Mother Assam) were raised.
The bill has been passed by the Lok Sabha on January 8 and is awaiting nod from the Rajya Sabha. It is being opposed by majority of the Northeastern states.
