Sikh groups protest Rahul Gandhi’s remark in Delhi

They demanded that Rahul Gandhi should reveal the names of party members who were involved in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. In the interview, Gandhi had said ‘some Congress men were probably involved in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and they have been punished for it’.

The protesters shouted anti-Congress slogans and held up black flags and placards, one of which read, ‘CBI should question Rahul Gandhi for Congress’ involvement in 1984 riots’. ‘We want justice.

We want to know who were involved in the riots,’ said a protester. ‘If chief minister Arvind Kejriwal is really with us, we welcome him, but if he is doing politics, we would like to request him not to do so,’ another protester said. Hundreds of demonstrators marched towards Congress headquarters and managed to cross the first barricade. They were stopped, however, at the second barricade by the police. Many of them were detained and taken to Tughlaq Road police station from where they were later released. Congress leaders Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar are facing allegations of involvement in them.
