The Government on the other hand has imposed Section 144 on New Delhi, which means that people cannot gather in a group of more than five in a particular area. Several metro stations in the city are closed but people have gathered in India Gate for a peaceful candle vigil. This act of the government has enraged many a people and some have openly critised the authorities on Twitter. Pritish Nandy tweeted, “When the nation grieves, the Govt must stop shutting down Metro stations, imposing Section 144. Instead, grieve with us, you fools.”
Reflecting this very emotion Barkha Dutt also questioned, "Why don't they (the government) lead the prayers for a broken, angry nation at India Gate today?" Abhishek Bachchan, on the other hand, felt ashamed to be an Indian. Vishal Dadlani, the singer tweeted, “The politicos are afraid right now. Remember when you asked "What difference can one person make"? This is the beginning of that difference.”
Praying for the family of the brave soul, the entire nation knows that she is in a better place now and that she would be safe in everyone's memory.
