The members of Ludhiana Sikh Migrants Welfare Board (LSMWB) have expressed disappointment over the delay in justice to the victims of antiSikh riots in 1984.

In a press release issued here on Saturday, Kanwaljit Singh Mong a, president, LSMWB, stated that they were disparaged with the role of political parties to carry forward the cause as they had completely failed to investigate the matter of alleged discrepancies in distribution compensation amount and allotment of booths and flats.

Monga accused t hat even leaders of Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) had failed to give justice to the victims. Kartar Singh Patna, chairman of the board, stated, “If the Centre and the state governments fail to provide the justice to the victims, we would cast votes against the parties at the Centre and the state.”

The members also demanded that the CBI should conduct the investigation against the accused of anti-Sikh riots. They also stated that the terrorism affected families should come forward to form a joint committee that would work for the rights of the victims.
