Soon after party nominee from the North East Delhi seat Jagdish Tytler announced his decision to pull out of the Lok Sabha polls, Congress on Thursday “deeply appreciated” the stand taken by the beleaguered leader.

“He had given his views and said that he is a disciplined soldier of the party and left the issue to the party president. We deeply appreciate that Tytler had made a statement with clarity that whatever the party decides he will abide by it,” party spokesman Anand Sharma told reporters in New Delhi.

Sharma recalled that Tytler himself had expressed that he is “innocent and disturbed” over the issue.

Parring a question on the candidacy of South Delhi contestant Sajjan Kumar, Sharma said, “If there is any consideration on any candidate, we will get back to you.”

Following the heightened controversy over his alleged involvement in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, Tytler announced his decision to pull out of the Lok Sabha elections saying he does not want to cause embarrassment.
