Amit Shah to face opposition heat in Lok Sabha over Delhi riots

As the Lok Sabha is set to take up the issue of the recent riots in Delhi on Wednesday, Union Home Minister Amit Shah will be giving his reply on the discussion.

As to when Amit Shah will be speaking in the Parliament is subject to functioning of the house but he expected to reply on the discussion around 5.30 pm.

The Lok Sabha has witnessed frequent disruptions last week over opposition demand for immediate debate on the "recent law and order situation in some parts of Delhi".

The discussion is expected to be initiated by Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury.

The government had said last week to repeated demands of opposition that it is prepared for it on March 11 after Holi in Lok Sabha and on March 12 in the Rajya Sabha.

The discussion is expected to take place when the Congress is battling for the survival of its government in Madhya Pradesh after its prominent leader Jyotiraditya Scindia resigned from the party.

Twenty-two of his loyalist MLAs are learnt to have resigned in Madhya Pradesh plunging Chief Minister Kamal Nath led government into a deep crisis.
