Thousands participated in the protest in Coimbatore on Friday, demanding the Union Government heed to their request of scrapping NRC. The ruling party AIDMK had voted in favour of CAA in both the Houses of the Parliament, inviting strong criticism from political rival DMK and its President M K Stalin.
