Spare no rioter, whichever party they belong to: Kejriwal on AAP councillors alleged involvement

New Delhi: Delhi Violence Today Live News Updates: Immediately after a delegation of Congress leaders met President Kovind to seek normalcy in violence-hit Delhi, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar addressed the media and continued his stance alleging that Congress and AAP were "politicising the issue". Slamming AAP and Congress, he said: "Aam Aadmi Party MLAs should have worked for peace, instead Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal identified riot victims by religion in Assembly. Attempts to instigate violence were made for 2 months, Sonia Gandhi gave call for 'fight to the finish' at rally in December."

Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court granted four weeks time to Centre to file response in the plea seeking registration of FIRs against BJP leaders for making provocative statements that led to riots in northeast Delhi. A bench of Chief Justice D N Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar gave the Centre time to respond after Solicitor General Tushar Mehta contended that "it was not conducive to file FIR now over hate speech". The matter has been adjourned for April 13.
