Shah must go over colossal failure: Sonia

New Delhi, February 26

Congress president Sonia Gandhi today lashed out at the government for its “colossal failure” in containing Delhi violence and demanded immediate resignation of Home Minister Amit Shah.

In a rare press conference, a first in years, Gandhi flanked by former PM Manmohan Singh and top party leaders asked where Home Minister was since last Sunday when the first clashes broke out.

Gandhi was speaking at AICC headquarters after chairing a three-hour meeting of the Congress Working Committee. She accused the BJP and AAP dispensations of “deliberate inaction” and said inflammatory speeches by BJP leaders triggered violence

“The CWC is of firm opinion that what happened in Delhi is a colossal failure of duty for which the responsibility must be borne by the Centre, particularly the Home Minister. He should quit immediately,” Sonia Gandhi said. — TNS
