    A day after BJP national president J P Nadda announced that Citizenship (Amendment) Act will be implemented, the All Assam Students' Union (AASU) yesterday staged a 11-hour dharna across Assam in protest against the law. AASU held demonstrations in dozens of towns apart from capital Guwahati and in various sub-divisions of the state. In Kerala, BJP yesterday released its manifesto which included a legislation to protect traditions of the Ayyappa temple at Sabarimala and law against "Love Jihad". It assured employment for at least one person from each family and free laptops to high school students. Lashing out at the Left Front government in Kerala, senior Congress leader A K Antony on Wednesday alleged the hallmark of the five-year rule under Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan was arrogance, ego and corruption and people of the state would not give another term for them.
