The Damdami Taksal on Monday sought an apology from the Union government for the attack on Golden Temple during Operation Bluestar.

Observing the 32nd anniversary of the operation at Chowk Mehta, headquarters of the seminary, the Taksal wanted the government to bring a resolution in Parliament seeking apology from the Sikhs for the 1984 episode.
