Is this failure of farmer leaders or HM Amit Shah?, asks Randeep Surjewala
Is this a failure by farmer leaders or Home Minister Amit Shah?, asks Randeep Singh Surjewala, spokesperson, Congress on the violence that unfolded on Republic Day.
The Home Minister, Mr. Amit Shah, is directly responsible for the planned violence and anarchy that took place under the guise of the peasant movement in the capital of the country. Under the conspiracy, in the name of the farmers, some miscreants were allowed to enter the Red Fort while Delhi Police kept sitting comfortably. Despite all the intelligence input in this regard, due to his failure to stop this violence, he is not entitled to continue in office even for a single moment, Surjewala said in the statement.
