Sonia Gandhi in Cong meeting

New Delhi, Feb 26 : The Congress Working Committee met on Wednesday and after deliberations for more than two hours, the interim party president Sonia Gandhi demanded that Home Minister Amit Shah should resign following his “colossal failure” in controlling violence in north-east Delhi.

“After reviewing the situation, the CWC is of the firm opinion that what has happened in Delhi is a colossal failure of duty for which the entire responsibility must be borne by the Central government, particularly the Home Minister, and calls upon the Home Minister to tender his resignation immediately”

The Congress said the Delhi Chief Minister is also responsible for the situation.

“The Chief Minister and the Delhi Government are equally responsible for not activating the administration to reach out to the people to maintain peace and harmony.

“It is the collective failure of the two governments that has resulted in a great tragedy in the capital city which threatens to become worse by the day,” said the CWC statement read out by Sonia Gandhi.

“The tragic events since last Sunday have a history, design and pattern. It was evident even during the Delhi elections. Several leaders of the BJP made inflammatory statements clearly intended to create an atmosphere of fear and hate. The last of these statements were made on Sunday, when a BJP leader gave an ultimatum of three days to the Delhi Police,” said the CWC statement.

The Congress said it is gravely concerned over the unprecedented continuing violence and loss of lives in Delhi, and the deteriorating situation in the national capital.

Sonia Gandhi said that since 2014 no all-party meeting has been called, which is “shocking”.

Violence continues unabated on the streets of north-east Delhi.

“The CWC offers its sincere condolences to the families of those who have lost their lives and earnestly wishes that the injured persons will recover swiftly and be restored to good health”, said the CWC.

New Delhi, April 10 : The government on Thursday slammed China at the United Nations for raking up India’s internal matters and its failure to recognize Pakistan’s cross-border terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.

A spokesman for the Chinese mission to the UN had earlier said that the “question of Kashmir remains high on the Security Council’s agenda”.

Beijing’s position on Indian Kashmir remains unchanged, he said adding that it is a “dispute left from history, and should be properly and peacefully resolved based on the charter of the United Nations, Security Council resolutions and bilateral agreements. China opposes any unilateral actions that complicate the situation”.

On China’s part, the spokesman said Ambassador Zhang as the Security Council president, had raised the issue at Pakistan’s behest in March.

In response to queries, the ministry of external affairs, Anurag Srivastava said that India rejects the reference to Jammu and Kashmir in a statement made by the spokesperson of the Permanent Mission of the People’s Republic of China to the United Nations.

“China is well aware of India’s consistent position on this issue. The Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir has been, is and shall continue to be an integral part of India. Issues related to J&K are internal matter to India,” he said.

The spokesperson said that the government’s expectation is that other countries, including “China, would refrain from commenting on matters that are internal affairs of India and respect India’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. We also expect China to recognise and condemn the scourge of cross-border terrorism that affect the lives of the people of India, including in J&K”.
