Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is considering cancelling his trip to India scheduled to begin on Sunday. Guwahati, the planned venue of a summit between Abe and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has been engulfed in violent protests over the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.

According to sources, the turmoil in Assam is unlikely to impact the Japan-India summit that is to be held in Guwahati between December 15-17. The clarification came after reports suggested that the venue could be shifted from the Assam capital.

The agitation in Guwahati saw some of the infrastructure being built for the the summit between being dismantled and burnt by protesters.
