Following the violence that broke out in North-east Delhi, the Karnataka state unit of Congress on Tuesday castigated Union Home Minister Amit Shah and termed him as the “most incompetent” Home Minister of India. To buttress this claim, the Twitter handle of Karnataka Congress cited the killing of police personnel, violence perpetrated on students in Jamia Millia Islamia University and JNU and “regular” riots in the country. Moreover, it alleged that the police had also indulged in stone-pelting. Thereafter, it observed that the Delhi violence reflected a complete “failure of law and order”. Accusing the Centre of conducting
"state-sponsored terrorism", it demanded the immediate resignation of Shah.
