New Delhi, India —
Ahead of the second half of the Budget session, Union Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal on Sunday said that there should be a debate on the Delhi violence so that it does not happen again and one must not play politics in the matter.
“Opposition members are giving notices to raise the issue of Delhi violence in the Parliament session starting tomorrow. There should be a debate on how we can ensure that this doesn’t happen again. But no one should play politics,” Arjun Ram Meghwal told ANI.
Till Saturday, at least 42 people had lost their lives and more than 200 people have sustained serious injuries in the communal violence that rocked north-east Delhi for four days.
