The Congress Working Committee (CWC) held a meeting here on Wednesday to discuss the post-violence situation in several areas of North East Delhi. Meanwhile, the party has decided to organize a “peace march” later this afternoon in which several senior Congress leaders are expected to attend.
The CWC meeting was attended by Congress president Sonia Gandhi, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, senior leaders AK Antony, KC Venugopal and many other leaders. The CWC is the highest policy-making unit of Congress.
According to sources, Delhi violence was mainly discussed in this meeting and a resolution may be passed soon. In view of the ever increasing social tension in Delhi, Congress leaders and activists will organize a ‘peace march’ in the afternoon for communal harmony from party headquarters, 24 Akbar Road to Gandhi Smriti, 30 January Marg.
Many senior leaders are likely to be involved in this. Significantly, the conflict between the groups supporting and opposing the amended Citizenship Act (CAA) in North East Delhi took a communal color. The protesters set fire to several houses, shops and vehicles and threw stones at each other. As of Wednesday, at least 20 people lost their lives and around 200 people were injured in these incidents.
