Amarinder flays Badal for remarks on Gandhis

first_imgPunjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Thursday hit out at former Deputy Chief Minister and SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal, accusing him of trying to drag the “innocent Gandhi family” into the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.Capt. Amarinder said Mr. Badal was by his recent remarks on Gandhi family attempting to undermine Rahul Gandhi’s leadership, under whom the Congress has recently won Assembly elections in three major States.‘Move will backfire’“Misusing religion for political gains will not yield any dividends for the SAD and would backfire on the party in the Lok Sabha elections, as it had done in the 2017 Assembly polls,” said Capt. Amarinder, adding that Mr. Badal should stop politicising such a sensitive issue.The Chief Minister said that while individuals who had any role to play in mayhem against the Sikh community deserved to be punished, it was irrational to try and drag the Congress party as a whole, or the Gandhis, into the case.“It was up to the judiciary, however, to nail and award punishment to the culprits, and neither Mr. Badal nor any other Akali or BJP leader had any locus standi in the matter,” said Capt. Amarinder, asking the SAD president to stop trying to take political mileage out of the issue.He hailed the High Court for sentencing former Congress leader Sajjan Kumar to life term, and expressed confidence that others guilty of the heinous crime will also be “paid back in the same coin”.Reacting to the court verdict convicting Sajjan Kumar, SAD chief Badal had said the Congress’s hand in the “massacre” of innocent Sikhs in the 1984 “genocide” had been proven beyond doubt with the Delhi High Court convicting (former) senior Congress leader and Gandhi family’s “right hand man” in the anti-Sikh riots case.(With PTI inputs)last_img read more
