Reddy said, "During last week we have witnessed disturbances in Delhi. Unfortunately, many innocent people lost their lives & property, including a brave constable. Rumours unleashed by a section of political parties, social media & media added fuel to fire." He added that the Central government is working hard to find and identify the conspirators of the riots.

"Modi government is determined to go to the bottom of the truth to unveil conspiracy, if any, to trigger riots. I will reiterate, CAA is not to take away the citizenship of any Indian but to give citizenship to persecuted religious minorities in Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan."

More than 40 people died in the Delhi riots, with multiple protests continuing throughout the week.
