Delhi violence: PM Modi urges for peace and harmony

Prime Minister Narendra Modi commented on the Delhi violence on Wednesday, urging people to maintain peace and harmony. This is the first time the PM has said something on the matter since the violence erupted on Sunday.
Around 200 have been injured and 21 killed in the ongoing riots in Delhi.
“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,” the PM said.
He added, “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.”
The remarks by the PM comes after a two-day visit to India by the United States President Donald Trump ended on Tuesday. The US President had on Tuesday said that he had discussed “religious freedom” with the PM.
On Wednesday, Congress president Sonia Gandhi demanded the resignation of Union Home Minister Amit Shah saying he was not seen anywhere in Delhi during the clashes and demanded answers from him on the issue.
