    The BJP leader noted that Shah had called a meeting of all political parties, including the Congress, over the communal violence in Delhi and asserted that it is the responsibility of all parties to help maintain peace.

    He also raked up the anti-Sikh riots in 1984 when the Congress was in power to hit back at the opposition party.
