Amid protests over the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in Assam, the BJP-led government in the state faced major embarrassment when family members of the people who lost their lives during the Assam agitation of the eighties - who were given Martyrs award by the Sarbananda Sonowal government in 2016 - decided to return the awards. 125 such families today took out a rally in Guwahati to return the awards as a mark of their protest against the citizenship bill, which the victim families see as an insult to the memories of the 855 people who lost their lives during the Assam agitation.
