AGARTALA, Jan 8 (TIWN): Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb who recently asked people to be players of 20-20 matches while addressing in Saras fair, was seen in T20 match between India and Srilanka at the Guwahati stadium.

Spectators were banned from bringing banners, posters and placards to the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati for the first T20I between India and Sri Lanka on Sunday. But there were still vocal protests against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) with chants against the BJP chief minister present at the stadium.

Approximately 35,000 spectators were present to see India’s first international match at the venue in over a year. However, when giant screens at the stadium showed Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal, finance minister Himanta Biswa and Chairman of Assam Tourism Development Corporation (ATDC) Jayanta Malla Baruah, the crowd broke into anti-CAA and anti-government slogans.

Videos surfaced on social media that showed the crowd shouting for the three leaders to ‘go back’ even as ground staff attempted to dry the pitch and the ground.
