The North-East Delhi is currently on fire owing to the massive clashes between pro-CAA and anti-CAA groups. The death toll has risen to 22 which also includes Head Police Constable Ratan Lal of Maujpur. Over 200 injured men have been admitted in Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital and Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital. The violent clash that has continued for 3 days in northeast Delhi is happening around the areas of Raisina Hills. This is the most secured area of Delhi that houses buildings like Parliament House Complex, the Rashtrapati Bhavan, the Prime Minister’s Office and the defense and home ministries, among other high-profile offices.

For the first time since violent protests broke out on Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted his two-cents on the ongoing tension in the national capital. His tweet read, ‘Had an extensive review on the situation prevailing in various parts of Delhi. Police and other agencies are working on the ground to ensure peace and normalcy. In another tweet, Modi wrote, ‘Peace and harmony are central to our ethos. I appeal to my sisters and brothers of Delhi to maintain peace and brotherhood at all times. It is important that there is calm and normalcy is restored at the earliest.’

In another news, Congress party leader Sonia Gandhi blamed Amit Shah for the unprecedented violence in Delhi. “What was the Home Minister doing since last week? What was the Home Minister doing earlier this week? Why were the paramilitary forces not called in earlier when the Home Ministry saw the situation worsening,” said Sonia Gandi. Congressmen and Netizens have been demanding Amit Shah’s resignation.
