More than 43 people died and over 200 got injured in the recent riots, an official from the Guru Teg Bahadur (GTB) hospital had told the media. Meanwhile, the Delhi police have put several other parts of the Capital on high alert.
The Opposition has been calling it a major failure of the Narendra Modi government to maintain Law and Order, and peace in the city as police comes directly under the Ministry of Home Affairs.
At 2 pm, when speaker Om Birla started the proceedings of the lower house, the Opposition leaders started protesting against the Narendra Modi government by coming to the well of the house with placards and black banners in hands.

The disturbance from the counter-parts provoked the saffron party MPs to rush towards the well and they started pushing each other despite thinking that they represent different parts of the country and have big roles and responsibilities.
As the situation went out of control, the speaker adjourned the proceedings of the house twice, first till 3 pm and then till 4 pm.
Coming out of the house, BJP MP Jaskaur Meena, while talking to the media, leveled allegations against Congress MP Ramya Haridas of manhandling. However, Ramya Haridas scrapped her allegations stating she asked her to move ahead, didn’t hit or push her.
