Delhi violence: Arvind Kejriwal, AAP MLAs not to celebrate Holi

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday announced that he would not be celebrating Holi this year in the wake of the Delhi violence that happened in the capital city for four straight days.

While addressing the media, the Aam Aadmi Party supremo said that he and his party MLAs would also not celebrate Holi.

Earlier today Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP President JP Nadda also announced that they would be skipping Holi festivities due to the on-going coronavirus outbreak in the country.

Over 44 have died and over 200 have been injured after four straight days of clashes in areas of northeast Delhi. Over 82 people sustained gunshots wound during the clashes.

Clashes in northeast Delhi erupted on February 24 as BJP leader Kapil Mishra organised a rally in support of CAA near Maujpur-Babarpur metro station in the northeast district. Later he also addressed the people who gathered in support of CAA, “threating action” against anti-CAA protesters if the Jaffrabad road was not opened. He, however, left the place after addressing the gathering. Later the crowd allegedly attacked the anti-CAA protesters, resulting in stones pelting from both ends.

The clashes then escalated to other parts of northeast Delhi, such as, Gokulpuri, Karawal Nagar, Chand Bagh, Khajoori Khas and Dayalpur.
