National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval on Wednesday briefed Home Minister Amit Shah on the prevailing situation in the violence hit Northeast Delhi. Doval, who visited Maujpur, Babarpur, Seelampur, talked to the affected people and assured all possible help from the central government. While talking to the media, Doval said that the situation in Maujpur is under control and the people from both the communities (Hindu and Muslim) are living in harmony. Urging the people to have faith in the police, the NSA further added that the forces are totally alert and capable of handling any untoward incident.
"My message is that everyone who loves their country - also loves their society, their neighbour. Everyone should live with love and harmony with others. People should try to resolve each other's problems and not increase them," Doval said. "People have a sense of unity among them, there is no enmity. A few criminals do things like this (spread violence), people are trying to isolate them. Police is here and doing its work. We're here as per the orders of Prime Minister and Home Minister. Inshallah yahan par bilkul aman hoga," he added.
