After the parliamentary session on Monday witnessed a scuffle between the Congress and ruling BJP with the former demanding Home Minister Amit Shah's resignation over last week's riots, AAP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh slammed the Centre alleging that government doesn't want to discuss the issue.

"If the Parliament cannot discuss an important issue of riot, if it can not come to a solution on such an important issue, then what is it for? If the government is not ready to discuss the issue what will the Opposition do?" asked Sanjay Singh.

'Centre standing with rioters'

The AAP leader accused the government of supporting riot mongers. He said, "The government respects rioters and is standing with them. How will the country be safe if the government has a riot-oriented mindset?"
