Tread with caution while dealing with AAP: Dal Khalsa to Sikhs


Amritsar: Expressing scepticism over AAP government’s move to form an SIT to probe 1984 anti-Sikh riots, radical Sikh outfit Dal Khalsa today said a string of inquiry commissions and committees have failed to uncover the truth and prosecute the “high and mighty perpetrators”.

The Sikh outfit also slammed Congress and BJP for playing “narrow politics over the dead Sikhs and Muslims”.

Dal Khalsa leader and spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh said, “a string of inquiry commissions and committees, set up by the Centre so far, has been unable to uncover the truth and also prosecute the high and mighty conspirators and perpetrators.”
He also said that it would be too early to judge intentions and approach of Aam Aadmi Party vis-à-vis Sikh concerns. “At this juncture, we could only say that Sikhs would have to be very, very cautious in dealing with the AAP”.

Singh also criticised Rahul Gandhi for speaking “white lie” that Congress government tried to stop massacre of Sikhs in November 1984.

He alleged that while the Congress was on the fore front to organise the riots in Delhi and elsewhere, the “lumpen and frenzied” elements from the RSS and BJP also “took part” in the carnage.

“Hands of both the parties are dipped in the blood of innocent Sikhs,” the Dal Khalsa leader said.
