Chandigarh, September 10, 2019: The Bharatiya Janata Party today urged Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh and other state Congress leaders to break their silence on Kamal Nath who has been summoned by the SIT constituted to probe 1984 killings of Sikhs in the national capital.

In a press release issued here today, Tarun Chugh, the national secretary of the BJP, said that not only Sikhs but the entire Punjabi community was looking upto Capt Amarinder Singh. “The Chief Minister always harps on his resignation from the Congress after Blue Star Operation but has always defended the perpetrators of 1984 Sikh killings.

He said that the SIT constituted by Union Government headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has summoned Kamal Nath to probe his role as he has been time and again accused of leading the mob outside Gurudwra Rakabganj Sahib.

Chugh said, Kamal Nath, a close confidant of the Gandhis, has not only been accused by the families of the victims but a renowned and credible journalist Sanjay Suri and Patna resident Mukhtiar Singh had also recorded their witness before an earlier commission of enquiry.

The BJP leader said that with MHA giving nod to reopen the case and the SIT summons to Kamal Nath, one can hope for justice which has been eluding the Sikh community now for over three decades.

“It is public knowledge that Congressmen including ministers, MPs, MLAs and Councillors were leading mobs hunting for the lives and properties of Sikhs as a result of which more than 3,000 Sikhs were killed brutally,” Chugh said adding that with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s resolve to impart justice to Sikh community, dozens of accused including former Congress MP Sajjan Kumar had been convicted by the various courts of law.
