Now on Friday, Sourav Ganguly put forward his point of view on CAB bill and its protest all over the nation. He said,” My message will be to maintain peace. I will not go into the political issues of it because I have not actually read the bill. I do not think it is appropriate to make any comment before understanding but maintain peace and harmony. If there are issues, the concerned people will be available to address it. For me, everyone’s happiness is important.”

With diplomatic views, Ganguly sidelined the question of CAB protest, as he suggested that violence was a major issue. CAB protests all over India is surely troubling the Indian government, as it became an act eventually (CAA).
