Tis Hazari clash: #WhereisAmitShah trends as Twitterati asks Anyone home, HM?
New Delhi, Nov 06: As the 'cops vs lawyers' slugfest started with thousands of police personnel protesting outside the Police Headquarters demanding action against lawyers, Twitterati started wondering why Home Minister Amit Shah was so silent. His silence drew comment through the crisis. Shah, who reached his North Block office in the morning, left in the afternoon for his residence where he chaired a review meeting on Jammu and Kashmir with the ministry's top bureaucrats.
It should be noted that at least 20 policemen and eight lawyers were injured and 21 vehicles vandalised in the clash on Saturday. The lawyers alleged that the police fired at them.
However, Home Minister Amit Shah has maintained a deafening silence in the matter. This is surprising because Delhi Police is not controlled by Lt. Governor of Delhi. Shah is directly in-charge of Delhi Police.
Twitterati started mocking this silence of the Home Minister, causing the top trending hashtag #WhereIsAmitShah questioning why he hasn't responded in the matter:

When MLAs & MPs are to be bought using black money, Amit Shah is there.
But when law & order has collapsed in Delhi, the Home Minister is nowhere to be found!#WhereIsAmitShah #LawyersVsDelhiPolice
For the first time in 72 years, the situation in the national capital is such that law & order has become disreputable. We are seeing unprecedented protests from the police force. But HM Amit Shah is mute & missing.#WhereIsAmitShah pic.twitter.com/LgRy6ArbtU— Congress (@INCIndia) November 5, 2019
Those who break the law, cannot keep law and order. Delhi is living proof of that. Tumse na ho payega... #whereisAmitShah— Preeti Sharma Menon (@PreetiSMenon) November 5, 2019
