about the video
The violence in Moti Nagar on Tuesday, involving Kanwariyas, is not a one-off incident — confrontations and violence, mostly over ‘right of way’, are reported every year in the three states of the National Capital Region, keeping the authorities on their toes during the full fortnight of the pilgrimage.The heavy police deployment in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and Haryana not withstanding, a mere spark, such as a vehicle brushing past a pilgrim, is all it takes to initiate full-blown violence. Last week, a brawl broke out between Kanwariyas and a bus driver in Gurugram after a pilgrim was allegedly hit by the vehicle and this is what the people of Delhi had to say about it.
