New Delhi/IBNS: Beating extreme cold on the last day of 2019, several anti-Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019, protesters in Delhi's Shaheen Bagh ushered in the New Year 2020 with slogans as well as National Anthem on Tuesday.

Continuing the protests for over two weeks, the agitators-led by mostly women brought their children to the place to raise voice against the contentious law which will grant citizenship to Hindu, Sikh, Christian, Buddhist, Parsi, Jain but not Muslim refugees who came to India from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan before 2015.

Several people were also seen waiving National Flag at the protest site and started to sing the National Anthem when the clock struck 12.
