The BJP on Thursday seized on Congress' decision to pull controversial leaders Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar as its candidates for Lok Sabha election in the wake of revival of anti-Sikh riot issue alleging "Congress' communal politics has recoiled on it".
"Congress is already two down in the capital. The party had to buckle under public pressure and this is the beauty of democracy. People are capable of exposing the communalism practised by the Congress," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar told PTI.
"Communal politics of Congress has got exposed and it and has recoiled on them. This development has once again established that people disapprove of Congress and its policies," he alleged.
The saffron party said the victims of 1984 anti-Sikh riots "have suffered their pains for the last quarter of a century and they would display their anger by way of votes in Lok Sabha polls", Javadekar said.
