Sonia holds HM responsible for Delhi violence, demands resignation


New Delhi, Holding Home Minister Amit Shah directly responsible for the violence in Delhi over the last three days, which has claimed life of 20 people, Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday demanded his resignation. "The CWC is of the firm opinion that what has happened in Delhi is a colossal failure of duty, for which the entire responsibility must be borne by the Central Government and particularly, the Home Minister and calls upon the Home Minister to tender his resignation immediately", Ms Gandhi said at a rare appearance for a press conference, after a meeting of the party's highest decision body on Delhi violence.

CWC also blamed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his government for not activating the administration to reach out to the people, to maintain peace and harmony. 'It is the collective failure of the two governments that have resulted in a great tragedy in the capital city, which threatens to worsen by the day,' the CWC said in a resolution adopted at it's meeting, held at the party headquarters. Later in the day, Congress will carry out a peace march from AICC headquarters to Tees January Marg.
