PM Modi urges ‘peaceful transfer of power’, condemns violence by pro-Trump mob at US Capitol

Joining other world leaders, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday condemned the attack by a pro-Trump mob at the US Capitol, saying the “democratic process cannot be subverted through unlawful protests”.

A violent mob loyal to President Donald Trump stormed the US Capitol on Wednesday, EST, and forced lawmakers into hiding, in a stunning attempt to overturn America’s presidential election, undercut the nation’s democracy and keep Democrat Joe Biden from replacing Trump in the White House.

“Distressed to see news about rioting and violence in Washington DC. Orderly and peaceful transfer of power must continue. The democratic process cannot be allowed to be subverted through unlawful protests,” he said on Twitter.

Meanwhile, all the four Indian-American Democratic lawmakers – Dr Ami Bera, Pramila Jayapal, Ro Khanna and Raja Krishnamoorthi – have expressed disgust after they were forced to take shelter at safe places as thousands of angry supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the US Capitol.
