New Delhi: Even as the Union home minister suggested to the Delhi police that it should be ready to deal with miscreants with “firm hands” and at the same time remain calm despite “provocation,” the much-speculated possible meeting between Amit Shah and the representatives of the Shaheen Bagh protesters did not materialise till Sunday evening.

Shaheen Bagh protesters, however, said they would march to the residence of the Union home minister for a dialogue over the new Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) after getting due permission from authorities.

 

A large posse of security personnel was deployed at Shaheen Bagh where hundreds of women protesters gathered to march towards the residence of Mr Shah for a dialogue over CAA. Barricades were placed at the site and the protesters were stopped after a little distance.

The protesters chose an eight-member delegation, including the elderly women called the dadis of Shaheen Bagh, to approach the police “to allow them” to meet Mr Shah and asserted that they will carry out the march peacefully.

Unable to get the requisite permission, the anti-CAA protesters returned to the venue where they have been holding agitation against the new law.

Senior police officials held talks with a group of protesters and assured that their application has been forwarded to the authorities concerned for further action.

At the 73rd Raising Day ceremony of the Delhi police, Mr Shah called it one of the leading metropolitan police forces in the country and the world which has foiled the attempts to create disturbance without any fail.
