The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) volunteers bicycled 30 kilometres from Tarn Taran to this city on Sunday in protest against local MP Capt Amarinder Singh’s giving a “cleat chit” to his Congress colleagues Kamal Nath and Jagdish Tytler in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.
Senior Supreme Court lawyer, HS Phoolka, who represented the riot victim, led the march. All along the way, the activists raised slogans asking Amarinder to tender an apology to Sikhs and the riot-affected families. They accused the new Punjab Congress president of “playing politics to please his party leadership”.
After the march terminated at Town Hall, Phoolka and some of his colleagues visited Jallianwala Bagh to pay homage to the martyrs of the freedom struggle. They then paid obeisance at the Golden Temple and prayed for justice to the riot-affected families.
