Bengaluru: As northeast Delhi was engulfed by communal clashes on Tuesday over the amended citizenship law, Former Cheif Minister Siddaramaiah urged Union Home Minister Amit Shah to issue strict orders to the police in Delhi to act in nation’s interest and control the ongoing violence.

Taking to Twitter Siddaramaiah wrote, “Distressing scenes in Delhi!! #DelhiBurning as a result of ulterior motives of divisive forces within our Country. Police have completely failed in their responsibility. People have to remain calm and promote peace in the area for their own benefit.”

“Seven people dead and hundreds are injured, Amit Shah should issue strict orders to police to act in nation’s interest and not in the interest of few people. As Gandhiji said, An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. Peace and harmony should be our moto,” he added.

Siddaramaiah further stated that the “triggering point of the #DelhiViolence seems to be the inciting speech of BJP leader Kapil Mishra.”

“This actually qualifies for a sedition case as it was aimed at disturbing national peace and security. Police have to arrest him and bring normalcy in Delhi,” he wrote.

Siddaramaiah has further asked Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa to be careful “before situation goes out of hand.”

“Delhi riots are in front of eyes. There will be tough situation here in state as well if those loose tongue leaders in BJP are not stopped in the state,” he wrote.

The death toll in northeast Delhi communal violence over the amended citizenship law rose to 17 on Wednesday, according to GTB Hospital authorities.

Four bodies were brought to the Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital from the Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital, taking the death toll to 17, a senior official said.

On Tuesday, the death toll was 13.
