Delhi violence ahead of Donald Trump's visit 

Responding to Ministers claiming that the violence in Northeast Delhi during Donald Trump's visit is an intention to spoil India's image, the Congress leader attacked the Centre on its "failure to govern". He further accused the Delhi police of inducing violence in the capital.

"If the violence was intended to spoil Trump's visit then the Centre has failed to govern. I would like to ask what was your intelligence doing previously?" 

"I believe that the Delhi Police is helping some people to induce the violence," the Congress leader alleged.
