Sam Pitroda asks everyone to ‘move on’ from the ‘issue’ of 1984 Sikh Genocide

Sam Pitroda apologises for his hua to hua comment, then tells everyone to “move on" from 1984 Sikh genocide

After the ‘hua to hua’ comment made yesterday brushing aside the Singh genocide of 1984, Congress leader Sam Pitroda has asked everyone to move on from the subject. Yesterday, The Chairman of Indian Overseas Congress and Rahul Gandhi’s mentor Sam Pitroda had said, 1984 happened, so what, while talking about the genocide done by Congress workers after the assassination of prime minister Indira Gandhi by Sikh bodyguards.

Sam Pitroda’s comment had raised huge outraged all over the country, and many people had condemned the same. Even the Congress party had also distanced itself from the comment, and chief minister of Punjab Amarinder Singh said that he does not agree with Pitroda. “The people who were behind the massacre should be punished”, Singh told media, clearly saying that the massacre can’t be forgotten as Sam Pitroda suggests.

Facing the heat, the Congress leader tried to cool things down by apologising, but instead, he ended up making the matter worse. He has said that his Hindi is not good, and he meant to say, what happened was bad, and now people should move on. He said that he wanted to say jo hua vo bura hua, but ended up saying hua to hua, as he could not translate the word “bad” to Hindi in his mind.

But with that, he also said that now we should move on. “What I meant was move on. We have other issues to discuss as to what the BJP government did and what it delivered. I feel sorry that my remark was misrepresented, I apologise. This has been blown out of proportion,” Sam Pitroda told news agency ANI.
