Cong and DMK  hold mega rallies in Tamil Nadu

A number of anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) rallies are scheduled on Monday as the situation continues to remain tense across the country. While at least 18 people have died in Uttar Pradesh due to violence during protests, around a thousand have been arrested and many others booked.

In the wake of violent protests, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has tried to calm the situation by assuring that the CAA will not affect a single India citizen irrespective of religion. Despite PM Modi's message, however, protests continue across the country in full swing.

On Monday, three mega rallies, two anti-CAA rallies and one demonstration in favour of the Act, are scheduled. Rahul Gandhi will lead one anti-CAA protest at Delhi's Rajghat while DMK has organised another from CMDA office to Rajarathinam Stadium.

Meanwhile, BJP's JP Nadda will hold a counter-rally supporting CAA in Kolkata. Follow India for all the live updates on CAA protests.
