Hundreds of women from the Mother’s Market have staged a sit-in protest in the main complex of the market from Saturday morning, refused to return home. The protestor women claim that they will continue showing protest at the market till Wednesday when it is likely that the Citizenship Bill would be taken up in the Rajya Sabha.
