PM Modi Condemns Violence by Pro-Trump Mob at United States Capitol, Advises ‘Serene Transfer of Power’
Signing up with other world leaders, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday condemned the attack by a pro-Trump mob at the United States Capitol, saying the “democratic process can not be overturned through illegal protests”.
A violent mob faithful to President Donald Trump stormed the United States Capitol on Wednesday, EST, and required legislators into hiding, in a stunning attempt to overturn America’s governmental election, undercut the country’s democracy and keep Democrat Joe Biden from changing Trump in the White Home.
” Distressed to see news about rioting and violence in Washington DC. Orderly and serene transfer of power need to continue. The democratic process can not be enabled to be subverted through unlawful protests,” he stated on Twitter.
Meanwhile, all the 4 Indian-American Democratic legislators– Dr Ami Bera, Pramila Jayapal, Ro Khanna and Raja Krishnamoorthi– have expressed disgust after they were forced to nestle at safe locations as thousands of mad advocates of President Donald Trump stormed the US Capitol.
US’ chosen representatives scrambled to crouch under desks and put on gas marks, while cops futilely tried to barricade the building, one of the most jarring scenes ever to unfold in a seat of American political power. A woman was shot and killed inside the Capitol, and Washington’s mayor set up a night curfew in an effort to contain the violence.
The rioters were agitated by Trump, who has actually invested weeks wrongly attacking the integrity of the election and had actually prompted his advocates to descend on Washington to protest Congress’ official approval of Biden’s success. Some Republican legislators remained in the midst of raising objections to the results on his behalf when the procedures were suddenly halted by the mob.
Together, the demonstrations and the GOP election objections totaled up to an almost unimaginable obstacle to American democracy and exposed the depths of the divisions that have flowed through the country during Trump’s 4 years in workplace. Though the efforts to obstruct Biden from being sworn in on Jan. 20 were sure to fail, the support Trump has gotten for his efforts to overturn the election outcomes have badly strained the country’s democratic guardrails.
