"Meeting with HM Amit Shah was positive and it was decided that all parties will take steps to restore peace," he told reporters after the meeting.

"The police are doing their bit and HM has assured that whatever force is needed, will be provided," Kejriwal said.

When asked he will ask for the deployment of the army, Kejriwal said: "If it is needed then I hope... But right now the action is being taken by police... We've been assured (during the meeting with the Home Minister) that the adequate number of police personnel will be deployed as required."
