New Delhi: Calling the violence in North-East Delhi, where 20 people have lost their lives, "unfortunate" and "condemnable", Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Wednesday urged the Central government "to conduct a high-level inquiry into the matter" and "punish those found guilty"."
People losing life and property being damaged in Delhi from the past few days due to violence is very unfortunate and condemnable. The Central and the Delhi governments should take this incident very seriously and must conduct a high-level inquiry into the matter.
दिल्ली के कुछ क्षेत्र में पिछले कुछ दिनों की हिंसा, उपद्रव व आगजनी की घटनाओं में भारी जान-माल की क्षति अति-दुःखद व अति-निन्दनीय। केन्द्र व दिल्ली सरकार इसे पूरी गंभीरता से लेकर इसकी उच्च स्तरीय जाँच कराए व सभी लापरवाही व दोषियों के खिलाफ सख्त कार्रवाई करे, यह बीएसपी की माँग है।— Mayawati (@Mayawati) February 26, 2020
Strict action should be taken against those who found to be irresponsible and guilty. This is the demand of the BSP," the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister said on Twitter (roughly translater from Hindi).
The death toll in the violence between pro and anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protestors in the areas of North-East Delhi has risen to 20 on Wednesday, according to GTB Hospital authorities.(ANI)
