Delhi Violence: Cong Reminds Centre of Its “Raj Dharma”

New Delhi: On the wake of violence in Delhi which killed at least 34 people in the national capital, a Congress delegation, including party chief Sonia Gandhi, on Thursday, urged President Ram Nath Kovind to call for Home Minister Amit Shah’s resignation over his alleged “abdication of duty” during the communal violence in Delhi and remind the Centre of its “raj dharma”.

The delegation, including former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad, Ahmed Patel, P Chidambaram, KC Venugopal, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Anand Sharma and Randeep Surjewala, also submitted a memorandum to the president over the wave of violence in Delhi.

Reading out parts of the memorandum before the media outside the Rashtrapati Bhavan, Sonia Gandhi said that instead of taking remedies to diffuse the situation in Delhi, the Centre and the newly elected Delhi government have remained “mute spectators” to the violence.

The violence has taken the lives of 35 people and businesses have fallen prey to looting, Gandhi said.

The Congress also asked the president to call for the resignation of Home Minister Amit Shah over alleged “abdication of duty” during the violence.
