As Bofors, INS Viraat and 1984 Sikh genocide get discussed, Priyanka Gandhi says PM Modi is talking of Pakistan and “other absurd issues”

Priyanka Gandhi's statement comes after Sam Pitroda was seen dismissing the 1984 Sikh massacre as "Hua Toh Hua" yesterday.

A day after Congress advisor and mentor to Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Sam Pitroda shrugged off the 1984 genocide of Sikhs saying ‘Hua Toh Hua’, PM Modi tore into Pitroda for his callous remarks and disrespecting the victims of Sikh genocide. Slamming PM Modi, now the Congress president’s sister and UP Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi has said in a rally in Siddharth Nagar, UP that PM Modi is talking about Pakistan and other ‘absurd’ issues to draw people’s attention away from the core problems.

The comment from Priyanka Gandhi that PM Modi is indulging in Pakistan and other ‘absurd’ issues may spark yet another controversy amidst the raging debate of Congress disrespecting Sikh Pogrom of 1984. Earlier today, PM Modi tore into Congress saying that the three words(Hua to Hua) reflect the character, mentality and intentions of the Congress party. Modi asserted that Congress has been insensitive towards the sentiments of the Sikh community who feel betrayed and hurt by Rahul Gandhi’s close aide Sam Pitroda’s recent remarks.

Sam Pitroda had earlier said, “Ab kya hai ’84 ka? Aapne kya kiya 5 saal mein, uski baat kariye. ’84 mein hua toh hua. Aapne kya kiya? (now what about ’84? What did you do in 5 years, talk about that. What happened in ’84 had happened. What did you do?) You were voted to create jobs. You were voted to create 200 smart cities. Aapne wo bhi nahi kiya. Aapne kuch nahi kiya isliye aap yahan wahan gup lagate hain (you didn’t do that also. You didn’t do anything hence you are talking here and there).”

It is notable here that many Congress leaders including Sajjan Kumar, Jagdish Titler and Kamal Nath have been accused of actively participating in the Sikh massacre. Sajjan Kumar was recently convicted for the same. There are also allegations by the legal activists fighting for the rights of the Sikh victims that the orders to kill Sikhs came from the very top in Congress hierarchy.

Congress has also been accused of echoing Pakistan’s narrative. After the Balakot airstrikes, despite Indian Air Force’s confirmation of the strikes, several Congress leaders such as Kapil Sibal, Sam Pitroda, Digvijaya Singh, Captain Amarinder Singh, Kamal Nath and Ashok Gehlot had questioned the authenticity of the airstrikes, thereby giving an opportunity to Pakistan to undermine our forces. Pakistan PM Imran Khan had then used the statements made by the opposition leaders to refute the claims of airstrikes done by India.

Even the Congress manifesto talked about diluting the AFSPA and reducing the number of Armed Forces personnel in Kashmir which smacks off their favourable stance vis-a-vis Pakistan. Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu had also absolved Pakistan of its crimes claiming that both sides are responsible for the ongoing animosity.

PM Modi had recently also talked about how India’s Naval warship INS Viraat was used as ‘taxi’ by the then PM Rajiv Gandhi for his private vacation along with his family and their relatives from Italy to Lakshadweep Islands.

When PM Modi asserts that the Congress party is doing ‘Mahamilavat’ with Pakistan to reap political benefits and that Congress has been insensitive to the victims of Sikh Genocide, or that the rampant usage of state resources by the Gandhi dynasty for their personal delectation, Priyanka Gandhi alleging that PM Modi is speaking about “Pakistan and other absurd issues” gives a glimpse of exactly where Congress stands on issues regarding national security and Law and order.

On one hand, the party keeps highlighting the cattle related violence as if it is one-sided violence done by Hindus on Muslims, but on the other hand, it is willing to completely look the other way when the issue of a large scale massacre of Sikhs is being discussed.
