Modi finally frees himself from hospitality to speak on Delhi violence

The silence followed by appeal of peace and expression of helplessness is a characteristic trademark of PM Modi since his Gujarat days, played out after every tragedy.


After three days of silence, today afternoon, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to twitter and appealed for calm and peace in Delhi.

The death toll has reached 20 in the violence that started on Sunday evening after BJP leader Kapil Mishra made inflammatory statements to Police and Pro-CAA supporters.

In two tweets on Wednesday afternoon, PM Modi said he held an extensive review meeting to look at the current situation in the national capital.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi Wednesday appealed to his “brothers and sisters of Delhi” to maintain “peace and brotherhood” at all times. He said it was important to restore “calm and normalcy” at the earliest.

PM Modi added, “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.”

Until yesterday Prime Minister Modi was busy entertaining state guest USA president Donald Trump. Trump was on a two-day India visit during which PM Modi hosted him to Gujarat Sabarmati Ashram and a visit to Tajmahal in Uttar Pradesh.

The two-day trip ended after meeting with Indian business leaders and a state banquet at the Rashtrapati Bhavan. 15 Kms away in Jafarabad and Maujpur, Delhi was on fire.

At least 20 people have died in northeast Delhi in the riots that started on Sunday and continued till Tuesday night. Incidences of shooting, arson, and vandalism are being reported even on Wednesday.

This delayed response to any crisis and calamity is a trademark strategy of PM Modi right from the days of Gujarat riots, where for days mob was allowed to carry out the violence. The army was called after 3 days in riot-affected areas.

In a press conference on Wednesday, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi held Home Minister Amit Shah responsible for the violence in Delhi and sought his resignation.

“The Centre and the Union Home Minister is responsible for the present situation in Delhi. The Union Home Minister should resign,” said Sonia Gandhi.
