Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made an appeal to the protesters in Delhi to remain calm and maintain peace and brotherhood at all times.

“Peace and harmony are central to our ethos. I appeal to my sisters and brothers of Delhi to maintain peace and brotherhood at all times. It is important that there is calm and normalcy is restored at the earliest,” PM Modi said on Twitter. “Had an extensive review on the situation prevailing in various parts of Delhi. Police and other agencies are working on the ground to ensure peace and normalcy,” the Prime Minister further said in another tweet.

The tweets come hours after both Supreme Court and the Delhi High Court expressed disappointment over the functioning of Delhi Police. While the Supreme Court panned the police for “lack of professionalism”, the Delhi high court said it is appalled by the state of affairs of Delhi Police.
