Lockdown may be extended with ‘change in work style’

While the parties were near unanimous about extending the lockdown, Prime Minister Narendra Modi raised the concerns of DBT and emphasised the need to work differently to run the economy

National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval today reached the DCP office in Seelampur area of n​orth-east Delhi and then the riot-hit areas as the embers of riots that erupted in the name of registering a protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) appeared to be thankfully extinguishing. Many people have lost their lives in this violence while many more are injured.

Doval, after visiting the DCP office in Seelampur area today, went to Maujpur, Jafrabad, Ghonda, Seelampur among several areas of north-east Delhi. He said that the police were working with promptness. “The situation is completely under control. People are satisfied. I trust law enforcement agencies. The police are doing their job,” the NSA said.

Doval met and interacted with the local people during this tour. Talking to an old woman, Doval said, “Love the people. We have this country alone. We all have to live together. The country has to move forward together.”

The NSA will give details of the situation to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his cabinet today. Doval has made it clear that anarchy will not be tolerated in the national capital.

By now, adequate police forces and paramilitary forces have been deployed in riot-ravaged places of Delhi. The authority has given the police a free hand to bring the situation under control. The worst affected areas will have Section 144 applied for a month while places where people died are under curfew.

Doval had visited Seelampur in the night too. He had obtained information from the police about the prevailing situation in the area. Several senior officers including the commissioner of police, joint commissioner and deputy commissioner of the north-east district accompanied the NSA.

Curfew was imposed on some of the areas in north-east Delhi last night after Section 144 failed to keep the rioters on a leash. Further, Delhi Police issued a shoot-at-sight order for the riot-affected areas.

So far, two policemen have been killed in the riots. The total death toll has risen to 21. The rioters injured 186 people including several IPS officers and many other cops.
