Amidst burning Delhi, Congress Interim President Sonia Gandhi attacked Modi government and Home Minister Amit Shah over Delhi riots. Sonia also slammed Delhi government for being silent on the violence.
Sonia accused the government and said, "intentionally not done anything to contain the violence in Delhi" because of which 20 people have lost their life."
"There is a conspiracy behind the violence, the country also saw this during Delhi elections. Many BJP leaders made inciting comments creating an atmosphere of fear and hatred," she added.
Asking Home Minister Amit Shah's resignation she said, "The Centre and the Union Home Minister is responsible for the present situation in Delhi. The Union Home Minister should resign."
Responding to it Union Minister of Information & Broadcasting Prakash Javadekar said, "Congress president Sonia Gandhi's statement is unfortunate & condemnable. At such times all parties should ensure that peace is maintained, blaming the government instead is dirty politics. Politicising this violence is wrong."
"They're asking where was Amit Shah. He took an all-party meeting yesterday where a Cong leader was also present. HM gave directions to Police&also boost the morale of Police. Statements by Congress have adverse an affect on the morale of police," he added.
