Questioning Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) chief Captain Amarinder Singh’s ‘authority’ to give clean chit to senior leader Kamal Nath on 1984 riots issue, AAP spokesperson Sukhpal Singh Khaira on Wednesday said the appointment of Kamal Nath as Congress in-charge was like rubbing salt into wounds of entire the Sikh community.
“Who is Captain to distribute ‘clean-chits’ to everybody involved in the massacre of Sikhs in Delhi, particularly in the light of the fact that no meaningful investigations have been conducted for the past 32 years to ensure justice to victims. I fail to understand in what capacity he is distributing these clean chits,” said Khaira at a press conference here.
Khaira said that as everybody is aware, the Nanawati Commission had pointed a finger of suspicion against Kamal Nath for his nefarious role in the riots.
“Two important witnesses too have deposed against the Congress leader, who was present at the site of the crime. Most importantly, the affidavit filed by Sanjay Suri, an eminent journalist, before the Ranganathan Mishra Commission in 1985, stating that Kamal Nath was present on the scene of crime in 1984, clearly points a finger on his role that needs to be investigated deeply,” said the AAP spokesperson.
