Home Minister Amit Shah has canceled his visit to Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh, scheduled for Sunday and Monday, officials in the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) said. The development comes in the backdrop of widespread protests in Assam and Meghalaya against the new citizenship law.
The MHA did not cite any reason behind the cancellation.
Shah was to take part in the passing out parade at the North Eastern Police Academy near Shillong on Sunday and a festival in Tawang in Arunachal the next day.
