Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Friday slammed Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) for politicising the 1984 riots issue following Kamal Nath’s nomination as Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister.Intervening during a call attention motion in the Vidhan Sabha on the issue after it was raised by Akali MLA Bikram Singh Majithia, Captain Amarinder Singh said the law was taking its due course as far as allegations against the veteran former union minister were concerned.The fact of the matter was that Kamal Nath had been Central Minister for more than 10 years after the allegations first surfaced, Captain Amarinder Singh pointed out, adding that a mere reference about the senior Congress leader in the Nanavati Commission report could not be construed as his involvement in the case. The law alone could decide the role of any individual, the Chief Minister said, adding that nobody should exploit this sensitive issue of the 1984 riots for their political ends.The Chief Minister also showed pictures of Parkash Singh Badal presenting a bouquet to Kamal Nath and Sukhbir Singh Badal and Parminder Singh Dhindsa attending a meeting with the former union minister to highlight the fact that the Akali leaders were just trying to politicize the issue for their petty vested interests.
