The Congress submitted a leave of motion notice in the Lok Sabha stating that the “unprecedented violence” during the riots had dented India’s secular credibility and tarnished the image of the country globally. Overall, 23 notices were submitted in both houses against the violence.

The Congress and the Trinamool Congress staged separate dharnas at the Gandhi statue in the Parliament premises as well. Aam Aadmi Party’s Sanjay Singh said he will demand a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) to investigate the riots.

Meanwhile, HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ is set to move the Bill to establish and incorporate Universities for teaching and research in Sanskrit, for consideration.

Besides, Health Minister Harsh Vardhan is likely to move a motion for election to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) at Gorakhpur, Bathinda, Guwahati, Bilaspur, Deoghar, Bibinagar, Vijaypur and Rajkot.

The Congress is likely to submit an adjournment motion in Parliament today over the devastating violence in North East Delhi that killed over 40 people and left more than 200 injured.

Yesterday, Congress’ leader in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said the party will strongly raise the issue of riot-torn Delhi and ask why the violence happened.

“The government has miserably failed to maintain law and order. I think there must be some sort of a nexus between the rioters and a section of police officials, which resulted in gruesome killings and arson that has tarnished our image across the globe. This is a matter of serious concern for us,” he said. “We will continue to raise the demand of Home Minister Amit Shah’s resignation on the floor of the House.”

The Budget session of Parliament began on January 31.
