Narendra Modi on violence in Delhi: Prime Minister Modi appeals for calm, says our central ethos peace and harmony | India News


NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi called for peace and brotherhood on Wednesday following violent clashes in Delhi in which at least 20 people have died.

“I had an extensive review of the situation prevailing in various parts of Delhi. The police and other agencies are working in the field to ensure peace and normalcy,” the prime minister tweeted.

“Peace and harmony are fundamental to our spirit. I call on my sisters and brothers in Delhi to maintain peace and brotherhood at all times. It is important that there is calm and normalcy is restored as soon as possible.” .

At least 20 people died and more than 180 were injured in the capital during violent clashes between two groups by citizenship law, even when a spooky calm descended Wednesday in areas torn by riots.

On Tuesday, the death toll was 13. The curfew was imposed last night in areas affected by the violence of the northeastern district to control the situation.

With sporadic reports of violence in the area, government sources told ANI that National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval has been accused of bringing normality to the capital.

The sources also said that Doval will inform Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Cabinet about the situation.

In particular, the NSA had visited Jaffrabad, Seelampur and other parts of northeast Delhi last night, where he held talks with leaders from different communities.
