However, senior leaders of the Delhi BJP, the Aam Aadmi Party and the Delhi Congress said they do not see any connection between these incidents.

The MLA said that the Chief Secretary was supposed to come for the meeting at 5 p.m., but he and two other IAS officers did not turn up despite the panel waiting for them till 6.15 p.m.

Meanwhile, Delhi BJP spokesperson and son of the first Delhi Chief Minister Madanlal Khurana, Harish Khurana, along with party workers protested outside the AAP Moti Nagar MLA's office. "We have never incited any violence (among different communities)". This faultline has come to public attention several times since the party came to power in Delhi for the second time in February 2015, as the Aam Aadmi Party government has accused state bureaucrats of working at the behest of the Bharatiya Janata Party government at the Centre.

The Chief Secretary paid a visit to the Prime Minister's Office on Wednesday evening, but did not brief on what transpired in the meeting at the PMO.

The AAP leader said that an emergency meeting was convened on Monday night to address the issue of 250,000 families who were deprived of food rations due to faulty implementation of Aadhaar.
