NEW DELHI: Looks like Ranjit Singh Chautala , a Minister from Haryana doesn’t think much of the ongoing violence in Delhi. He seems to think that such incidents are “…a part of life.”
During a interview with media he said,“Dange toh hote rahe hain. Pehle bhi hote rahe hain, aisa nahi hai. Jab Indira Gandhi ka assassination hua, toh puri Delhi jalti rahi. Yeh toh part of life hai, jo hote rehte hain.”
In another latest development this morning, Justice S Muralidhar has been transferred to the Punjab and Haryana High Court after he criticized Delhi police over the ongoing violence in the city.
Congress delegation led by Congress President Smt. Sonia Gandhi & Former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh met with Ram Nath Kovind, President of India, to present a memorandum on the Delhi violence.
“Congress Working Committee believes that Home Minister and Central Government is responsible. Home Minister should tender his resignation with immediate effect,” she told media.
According it reports, the Supreme Court collegium had recommended the transfer of 3 judges on February 12. The notifications were issued on Wednesday night.
According to latest media reports, Delhi death toll has touched 35. Hundreds have been injured in clashes in north east Delhi.
A few days ago, sporadic incidents of stone-pelting between anti and pro-CAA groups at Maujpur in east Delhi broke a relative lull in tension over the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act. The police fired teargas shells. The tension erupted after a pro-CAA rally in the area was stoned by a group of anti-CAA protesters. Following stone-pelting by both groups, the police stepped in to disperse the two groups.
Metro stations have been shut down in the area as a precautionary measure. Metro rail stations that have been shut down include the Maujpur-Babarpur and the Seelampur metro station, adding to the overall congestion and chaos prevailing in the area. More security forces are being directed to the spot from other areas including nearby Jaffrabad.
