The Congress denied on Wednesday that it had named anti-Sikh riots-accused Sajjan Kumar and Jagdish Tytler, among others, in a committee to monitor the campaign for Delhi assembly elections.
The clarification came after TV channles started flashing reports on Kumar and Tytler.
According to these TV reports, Delhi Congress chief Arvinder Singh Lovely, Ajay Maken, Shakeel Ahmed and Harun Yusuf were some of the members of the Election Command Committee. Reports also said former Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit’s son, Sandeep Dikshit, has not been included in the panel.
Later, Congress leader Ahmed told ANI no such panel had been formed.
Elections are scheduled in Delhi in January-end or early February before the President’s rule comes to an end in the Capital.
