Delhi riots: Days after the death of Delhi Police Head Constable Ratan Lal in the riot-hit North East Delhi, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced Rs 1 crore relief and a government job to a family member of the deceased on Wednesday, February 26. In the Delhi Assembly, Chief Minister said the government would take care of Ratan Lal’s family.
The people of the city never support violence, this all has been done by some anti-social, political and external elements. They can not be Aam Aadmi (common man) asserted Kejriwal. He further said that the politics of hatred and violence would not be tolerated.
The chief minister had met and extended condolences to the families of Ratan Lal on Tuesday.
Reports said CM Kejriwal and Delhi Chief Secretary would soon visit the riots-hit areas of North East Delhi to build confidence among people as ordered by the Delhi High Court.
