The Shiromani Akali Dal today (SAD) President Sukhbir Singh Badal today said chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh had given a clean chit to 1984 prime genocide perpetrator Jagdish Tytler in the august Vidhan Sabha and condemned this as an outrageous act which was tantamount to denying the Congress party’s role in the planning and execution of mass killings of innocent Sikhs in 1984 in Delhi.Addressing newsmen on this issue here, the SAD president said the chief minister had also told the Vidhan Sabha that he knew about four persons who were involved in the genocide of Sikhs including HKL Bhagat, Arjun Dass, Sajjan Kumar and Dharam Dass Shastri. He said following this self disclosure the chief minister should present himself as witness before the SIT formed by the Supreme Court to investigate the mass murders.Mr Badal said in another disturbing development, Capt Amarinder Singh had claimed that the Congress leaders had committed mass murders of Sikhs in their individual capacities.
He said while no one would ever believe such a fantastic explanation, if it was so then the CM should explain why these leaders were rewarded after the massacres and given plum posts in the Congress party as well as the government.The SAD president also lashed out against Congress President Rahul Gandhi‘s outrageous lies as well as denial of the his party’s murderous hand in the brutal and inhuman genocide. He said “Rahul Gandhi’s father Rajiv Gandhi had carried the traditional hatred of his family and his partyagainst the Sikhs to new and brutal heights . He not only ordered the ruthless execution of his orders on burning thousands of innocent Sikhs including elderly and helpless men, women and children alive by throwing burning tyres around their necks”.Earlier , former minister Bikram Singh Majithia fired direct and unsettling questions at the Congress benches and their party, with allegations of what had forced Rahul Gandhi to go back on his party’s role in the massacre of Sikhs.Those present at the press conference included S.Bikram Singh Majithia, S.Virsa Singh Valtoha,Sh.NK Sharma, Dr.Daljit Singh Cheema, Bunty Romana.
