BJP slams former PM for his remarks over 1984 anti-Sikh riots


The BJP has criticized the former Prime Minister and Congress leader Dr Manmohan Singh for his remarks over 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

Speaking at an event to mark the 100th Birth Anniversary of former Prime Minister I K Gujral, Dr Singh said that 1984 anti-Sikh riots could have been avoided if the then Home Minister P V Narasimha Rao had heeded the suggestion of Mr Gujral of calling in the Army.

Union Minister and senior BJP leader Prakash Javadekar while talking to reporters in New Delhi today, questioned that if Narasimha Rao was not an efficient Home Minister, why did Dr Singh choose to become the Finance Minister in his government in 1991.

Mr Javadekar blamed Rajiv Gandhi, who succeeded Indira Gandhi as the Prime Minister that very night, for the riots and said that the Prime Minister has the right to order Army deployment in such a situation.

He alleged that Rajiv Gandhi supported the massacre with his subsequent comments that the earth shakes when a big tree falls.
