IYC plans protest to seek Shah’s ouster over Delhi riots

New Delhi: A forensic team and a team of the crime branch of the Delhi Police inspects the house of suspended Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) councillor Tahir Hussain to probe his role in the riots that broke out in North East Delhi, on Feb 28, 2020.

New Delhi,  The Indian Youth Congress (IYC) will organise a protest outside Parliament on Monday to demand resignation of Home Minister Amit Shah for his abdication of duty during the recent communal violence in Delhi.

The IYC also wants immediate registration of FIRs against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders — Kapil Mishra, Anurag Thakur and Parvesh Verma — for hate speeches.

“The protest, led by IYC chief B.V. Srinivas, will start at 12.30 p.m. from Raisina Road. The Congress will move adjournment motion in the House to press for resignation of the Home Minister,” said IYC spokesperson Amrish Ranjan Pandey.

The Congress said on Sunday it would raise the issue of Delhi violence during the Parliament session, which re-starts on Monday after recess.

Earlier, a delegation of the Congress Working Committee (CWC), led by interim party chief Sonia Gandhi, met President Ram Nath Kovind and sought ouster of Shah.

More than 40 people were killed in the northeast Delhi violence that erupted on February 23 after pro- and anti-CAA groups clashed.
