Parliament Today Highlights: Replying to a discussion in Lok Sabha on the Delhi riots, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday vowed not to spare anyone involved in the violence, which left over 50 dead and many injured. He also stated that it will be lesson for the country on what befalls those who indulge in rioting.
Facing opposition criticism over alleged inaction by the Delhi police during the violence last month, Shah appreciated the police for not allowing the riots to spiral. While expressing grief over the death of people in the violence, Shah said the Delhi police succeeded in controlling riots within 36 hours.
Shah’s reply came after the opposition in Lok Sabha demanded the resignation of the Home Minister for failing to contain the violence in Delhi for nearly three days, even as the BJP accused the Opposition of politicising the situation to further its narrow interests.
