Mansa: Union Minister for Food Processing Harsimrat Kaur Badal today described as shameful JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar’s remarks suggesting that there was a difference between the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and the 2002 Gujarat riots.
“It is a matter of shame that a student leader has forgotten the issues of students and is saying the 1984 riots was a ‘mob-led massacre’.
“This despite the fact that the riots were organised at the behest of the government…Even after 30 years, we are fighting for action against the accused,” the senior SAD leader said.
Reacting to reported remarks of AAP leaders that their party would sent SAD leaders behind bars in connection with the cases of drugs, she said, “The drug issue was raked up before our government came to power.
“The then Congress government at the Center got an enquiry conducted by five central agencies but could not find anything incriminating against us,” she said.
