Sikh community will protest against Kamal Nath’s appointment as CM: Akali leader Manjinder Sirsa

Sirsa also dared the Punjab CM to resign in protest and questioned the silence of Punjab Congress leaders over Kamal Nath's appointment as CM in Madhya Pradesh.

Akali Dal leader and Delhi MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa on Thursday accused Congress President Rahul Gandhi of rubbing salt to the injuries of the Sikh community as the Congress party decided to make senior Congress leader Kamal Nath as the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh.

Kamal Nath, who was chosen to be the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh by the Congress president yesterday has been accused of involvement in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. Reacting to the Congress party’s decision, the Akali leader has warned of nation-wide protests and said that it will not end until the justice is served. He further said that the Congress party is the enemy of Sikhs and will be paid back in their own way.

Sirsa slammed Congress President Rahul Gandhi for his decision and said that the Congress president wants to give a message to the perpetrators of anti-Sikh riots in 1984 that they need not worry, as he is not only behind them but will also reward them instead.

“Whenever the Gandhi family comes to power, it protects the perpetrators of the 1984 riots. Now Rahul Gandhi and the Gandhi family are rewarding Kamal Nath as chief minister of Madhya Pradesh,” he told reporters.

“The Sikh community is not scared and we will ensure that Kamal Nath gets the punishment for his misdeeds. The Congress may control the judiciary or the CBI, but it will not be able to protect the culprits”, Sirsa had earlier said to the media.

Earlier, Akali Dal leader Sirsa had asked the Punjab Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh to resign from his post after Nath’s selection and questioned the silence of Punjab Congress leaders who had opposed Nath’s appointment as in charge of Punjab affairs.

Even in the past, Sikhs in Punjab and Haryana had opposed when Nath was appointed general secretary in-charge of Punjab and Haryana and later he had to resign from the post. Kamal Nath is accused of leading a violent mob attack on Gurdwara Rakabgunj on November 1, 1984, in which the mob had burnt two Sikhs, a father and son alive.

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 are often accused of playing active roles in orchestrating the 1984 anti-Sikh riots in India.
