Speaking on the 1984 anti-Sikh riot case and Jagdish Tytler’s alleged involvement in the episode, AAP MLA Jarnail Singh has now alleged that a “deal” had been struck between Congress and BJP. According to Singh, the deal was regarding the CBI’s admission to a Delhi court that no fresh FIR had been lodged against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler in connection to 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
Singh accused the BJP, SAD and Congress of “working in tandem” to absolve Tytler of his alleged involvement in the riots in which over 3,000 people died. Tytler has earlier been given a clean chit in the case.
“Central Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI) decision to give a clean chit to Jagdish Tytler, prime accused in 1984 Sikh genocide shows that BJP-Akali and Congress are working in tandem to put their sins of 1984 and 2002 violence under the carpet. They have struck a deal,” he said.
Jarnail Singh also referred to lawyer Rohini Salian’s claim that she had been asked to “go soft” on the 2008 Malegaon Blast accused, and alleged that the Narendra Modi government was trying to “save the culprits who are related to their ‘parivaar’.”
