1984 Sikh genocide was planned at Sonia Gandhi’s residence, she should be interrogated, says Sukhbir Badal

Badal praised the Modi government for forming the SIT and taking the case to its justified conclusion.

Shiromani Akali Dal leader and former Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal on Wednesday said that the Special Investigation Team (SIT) conducting the 1984 Anti-Sikh riot probe should summon the UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Congress President Rahul Gandhi to question them in connection with the 1984 Anti-Sikh riots case, reported ANI.

Sukhbir Singh Badal reportedly said that the mother-son duo should be put through a lie detector test to find Congress party’s involvement in the killings of Sikhs in Delhi and other places after the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

“SIT should summon Sonia Gandhi as the conspiracy (1984 anti-Sikh riots) was hatched at her residence and her husband was in power. Captain Amarinder Singh should also tell her (Sonia) to go for a lie detector test,” Badal said as quoted by news agency ANI.

Sukhbir Badal’s statement comes in the wake of the recent judgement delivered by the Delhi court which awarded death sentence to one convict Yashpal Singh and life term to Naresh Sehrawat for the killing of two Sikh men in Mahipalpur village in South Delhi in 1984.

“The Sikhs were butchered under the supervision of Rajiv Gandhi. He purposely didn’t call the Army for four days. The decision to kill Sikhs was taken at his residence,” Badal said in Delhi.

Expressing his satisfaction at the Delhi court’s judgement, Badal said that justice has been served for the victims after 34 years. He went on to slam Congress by accusing Congress of attempting to shelter perpetrators of ‘1984 Sikh Genocide’ and said that the attempts of the Congress party have been defeated due to the efforts of the SIT.

Reportedly, Badal also lauded the Narendra Modi-led NDA government and said, “All this has been possible due to affirmative and decisive action taken by the NDA government which formed a SIT in 2015 to take massacre cases to their logical conclusion.”

“I join the Sikh community in expressing satisfaction at just punishment to the two convicts. Now it is the turn of the two big butchers of Delhi – Tytler & Sajjan to face the hangman’s noose. The Sikh community also awaits unmasking of the role of Gandhi family and other Congress leaders in the execution of the genocide and hopes they also will be proceeded against as per the law,” tweeted Badal.

The 1984 Anti-Sikh riots took place aftermath of the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, which resulted in brutal killings of more than 2800 people according to official figures. Congress leaders Sajjan Kumar and Jagdish Tytler were directly accused of large role in orchestrating the 1984 anti-Sikh riots in India.

We had earlier reported regarding a witness named Cham Kaur identifying senior Congress leader Sajjan Kumar in the 1984 Anti-Sikh pogrom causing huge embarrassment to the Congress. Cham Kaur had also alleged that she was offered Rs 5 lakh not to depose any statements in the court against Congress leader.
