October 31: Tarun Chugh, the national general secretary of the BJP, said today that Amarinder Singh Warring, the president of the Punjab PCC, has been circulating a myth in Madhya Pradesh, claiming without evidence that Kamal Nath was not involved in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
According to Chugh, the Nanavati Commission report made it quite evident that Mukhtyar Singh, the primary witness, had said that Kamal Nath was the one instigating the crowd to assault the Sikhs at Gurudwara Rakab Ganj.
According to the Nanavati Commission report, Chugh said that Kamal Nath led the group of hooligans that subsequently looted the gurdwara and assaulted the Sikh devotees during an attack on the devotees in the Rakab Ganj gurdwara.
According to Chugh, the Congress leaders’ brutal and violent campaign against the Sikh community in Delhi is the worst chapter in recent history. Warring is doing the Sikh community a great disservice if he attempts to defend the criminals or rationalise the violence.
He said that Warring had purposefully misled people in Madhya Pradesh during his election campaign speeches by disseminating untruths about Kamal Nath. According to Chugh, any effort to keep Kamal Nath out of the Sikh community’s bad books will simply increase antipathy among the community and embarrass the Congress leaders.
Chugh said that the people of Madhya Pradesh and the rest of the nation are well aware that Kamal Nath’s hands are stained with blood.
