New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday sought re-opening of 1984 anti-Sikh riots cases. The party wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and asked him to get the cases investigated by Special Investigative Agency (SIT) which was set up by the Centre last February.
Hitting out at the Centre, AAP leader Jarnail Singh said that the AAP government had formed an SIT during their 49-days tenure during 2013-14, but the Centre constituted its own SIT two days before the AAP government came into power in 2015. He further added the SIT formed by the Centre claimed to re-open the cases in six months bust failed to do so even in 2 years.
Jarnail Singh further said that the victims of the 1984 genocide are still facing injustice after 32 years. He has asked PM Modi to re-investigate the cases in the coming three months otherwise, let the AAP government do so.
AAP leader also sought a public apology from Amarinder Singh for giving clean chit to Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar.
AAP will be holding one-day hunger strike at Mohali’s Sahibzada Ajit Singh Nagar on Thursday, in support of 1984 riots victims.
