Applications are being issued to renew the French citizenships and to apply afresh. Accordingly, a large number of people gathered in front of the consulate since early this morning.

The consulate staff however, said no applications were issued today.

Police intervened and pacified the protestors following which the staff displayed a board that no applications would be issued today.
