Delhi Assembly passes resolution demanding revocation of Rajiv Gandhi’s Bharat Ratna

 

Staff Reporter / New Delhi

Delhi Assembly today passed a resolution demanding that Bharat Ratna awarded to former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi be withdrawn over the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

The resolution moved by AAP MLA Jarnail Singh was passed by a voice vote in the House. It termed the anti-Sikh riots as a genocide.

The resolution said, Delhi government should strongly convey in writing to the Union Home Ministry that justice continues to elude the families and near-dear ones of the victims.

The House directed the city government to impress upon the Centre that it should take all important and necessary steps to specifically include crimes against humanity and genocide in India’s domestic criminal laws, as recommended by the Delhi High Court in its recent landmark judgment sentencing Sajjan Kumar and other convicts to life imprisonment.
