New Delhi [India], Mar 6 (ANI): Along with other party lawmakers, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi on Friday staged a protest in front of Mahatma Gandhi statue at Parliament, demanding the resignation of Union Home Minister Amit Shah over recent Delhi violence.
"We are doing dharna here against the government. Congress MPs are protesting against Delhi violence. We are demanding resignation of Home Minister," Gandhi told ANI.
During the protest, Congress MPs raised slogans -- "Give Justice, Give Justice to Delhi".
Accusing both the Centre and the Delhi government for the violence in the national capital, Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi had demanded the resignation of Shah. She has even called the violence a "well-planned conspiracy".
Various opposition leaders including Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Nawab Malik had said that the Delhi violence was "pre-planned" and demanded the resignation of Union Home Minister.
"Supreme Court has said that several lives could have been saved. It indicated that the riots were pre-planned. Police were given some kind of order for not acting. Amit Shah must resign as he doesn't have a moral right to stay in the office of the Ministry of Home Affairs," Malik had told ANI.
The Delhi violence has claimed 53 lives and left around 200 grievously injured. (ANI)
