Punjab revenue minister Bikram Majithia on Monday said Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi should quit politics as he apparently refused to apologise for the 1984 anti-Sikh riots after admitting the involvement of some Congress leaders in the massacre.


“Rahul should have expressed regret for the riots. But he refused to apologise so blatantly. Such an arrogant behavior is uncalled for of a politician eyeing the prime ministerial post,” said Majithia.
He said a person aspiring to become Prime Minister should think of people’s welfare. Such immaturity in itself speaks volumes about his suitability for the post.

“Rahul should leave politics on his own or people will show him the door. Indian politics does not has space for uncaring, callous people,” claimed Majithia.

The minister said the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) president Partap Singh Bajwa should also clarify his stand on Rahul's statement.

“Bajwa should ensure that Rahul apologises to the Sikh community or it will prove that the PPCC chief is siding with the party instrumental in Sikh genocide for selfish interests,” he added.
He said Congress’ days were numbered and the party will not get even 50 seats in the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls.

Earlier, Majithia distributed 874 bicycles under the Mai Bhago Scheme to girls of class 11 and 12 in Majitha. He also distributed free winter uniforms besides handing over a cheque of Rs 3.87 lakh under the minority student stipend.
