NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday appealed for peace and brotherhood in the wake of violent clashes in Delhi in which at least 20 people have been killed.
“Had an extensive review on the situation prevailing in various parts of Delhi. Police and other agencies are working on the ground to ensure peace and normalcy,” the PM tweeted.

“Peace and harmony are central to our ethos. I appeal to my sisters and brothers of Delhi to maintain peace and brotherhood at all times. It is important that there is calm and normalcy is restored at the earliest,” he added.

At least 20 people have been killed and over 180 injured in the capital during violent clashes between two groups over the citizenship law, even as an eerie calm descended in riot-torn areas on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, the death toll was 13. Curfew was imposed last evening in violence-hit areas of the North-East district to bring the situation under control.
With sporadic incidents of violence being reported from the area, government sources told ANI that the National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval has been given the charge of bringing normalcy in the capital.
Sources also said that Doval will brief Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Cabinet about the prevailing situation.
Notably, the NSA last night had visited Jaffrabad, Seelampur and other parts of North-East Delhi where he held talks with leaders of different communities.
