CAA, NPR and NRC were the issues on which discussions and talks were conducted in these programs. About one hundred to three hundred people participated in each of the programmes.

Section 144 of the CrPC still remains imposed throughout the state, and the terror of Yogi government continues to be unleashed. Yogi Adityanath, in his all pronouncements has blamed Left and Congress for each and every protest action, which took place in UP against CAA, NPR and NRC. Though, some of the women had tried to organise a dharna on January 23  at Beniabagh, Varanasi, who were not linked with the Left parties, yet the SSP of Varanasi issued a press statement saying that Left and Congress had financed them to hold dharnas. The Left Parties criticised the statement of the SSP.
