It is said that in politics, there are no permanent friends or foes, but only permanent interests and it applies amply to President of Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee, Capt Amarinder Singh. By his recent actions, he has proved that he is most selfish and self centred politicians who can go to any length for his political motives.
The PCC President began speaking in favour of anti-Sikh riots accused Jagdish Tytler and Kamal Nath sometime back just to grab the post of Punjab Congress President. No doubt he was successful in his mission, but in the process he (Capt Amarinder Singh) has degraded himself in the eyes of people and in his own eyes. Also in the process, Capt Amarinder Singh has insulted the victims of anti-Sikh riots.
Not the work of a devout Sikh
As a devout Sikh (which Amarinder is not), the PCC President, should have joined masses who had demanded that former Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi be stripped off Bharat Ratna as he was the mastermind behind genocide of Sikhs and of provoking mobs to attacks properties of Sikhs. The matter did not stop here and Amarinder Singh had gone to the extent of saying that Jagdish Tytler and Kamal Nath were wrongly implicated in anti-Sikh riot case dating back to year 1984.
Why clean chit to Tytler, Kamal Nath?
Amarinder Singh did that just to grab the post of PPCC President. The question is that a leader like Amarinder Singh does not have time to meet victims of anti-Sikh riots, but has temerity to support Jagdish Tytler and Kamal Nath. Not only that Amarinder went on to say that a video of former Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi’s speech delivered on November 19, 1984 at Delhi’s Boat Club on Indira Gandhi’s birth anniversary was not authentic.
Amarinder shielding guilty
In the video grab Rajiv Gandhi was purportedly seen saying that when the big tree falls, the earth shakes which was a clear reference to the anti-Sikh riots. What else people want to know about the man called Capt Amarinder Singh? He should be questioned as to why hewas trying to shield anyone involved in the anti-Sikh riots in 1984 in the aftermath of the assassination of Indira Gandhi?
Capt Amarinder knows the names of those who led the mobs who organaised the genocide of Sikhs, but was trying to shield them. Amarinder Singh had several times issued statements claiming that his party colleague Tytler was never involved in anti-Sikh riots.Captain has been repeatedly giving clean chit to Tytler. In view of all this, Captain should apologise. If he fails to tender an apology, Capt Amarinder Singh should be flooded with questions by people as he is answerable on this vital issue. Thousands of Sikhs are massacred and Capt Amarinder Singh comes in support of perpetrators of crime and not of victims of riots and their families? What an irony? A former Chief Minister can go down to such a low level just to grab a position of power!
