This post came few hours of Gandhi’s attack on PM Modi. He accused him of turning “a blind eye to the anarchy” and nudging “chaos and disorder” in Delhi through a tweet. This tweet was made as Arvind Kejriwal and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)’s protest at the Lieutenant Governor’s home in Delhi.

People of Delhi are the victims, as this drama plays out.
