Delhi’s government approached the artist after cancellation of his performance in Mumbai and Pune
New Delhi’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has announced to deploy its ‘army of workers’ to ensure ghazal maestro Ghulam Ali’s concert goes well in the national capital.
“If need arises, we will deploy our army of party workers to ensure the programme goes fine. We will not allow any kind of disruption in the event,” senior party leader Sanjay Singh said on Thursday.
The primary responsibility, however, of maintaining law and order and ensuring the event is held without being disturbed, lies with the police in Delhi, he added.

The comments came after reports suggested Shiv Sena sent fresh threats aimed at disrupting the second attempt to organise the event.
Undeterred by Indian hardline organisation Shiv Sena that forced cancellation of his concert in Mumbai and Pune last week, Ghulam Ali is all set to demonstrate his talent in the Indian capital on November 8.

The cancellation had prompted Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi comments, calling it “sad and undesirable”.
Later, the Indian government approached the artist to perform in Delhi, and fortunately got his nod to give the event, and peace, a second chance.
