Amritsar, Punjab: Former DSGMC president Paramjit Singh Sarna today lashed out at the SAD-BJP alliance for distorting Captain Amarinder Singh’s statement on Jagdish Tytler with an eye on political gains.
Sarna said Amarinder had merely narrated the eyewitness account after visiting the relief camps of the 1984 genocide victims. “He had not given a clean chit to anybody,” he said. He asked whether Parkash Singh Badal had visited any camp of the genocide victims.
He said Amarinder was the only leader who not only quit the Lok Sabha but also the Congress. Alleging that BJP candidate Arun Jaitley had told the Sikhs to forget Operation Bluestar, he wondered why the Akalis had not objected to this. He alleged the SGPC didn’t give a single penny to the genocide victims. He said the SAD-BJP alliance felt that they were fast losing ground in the elections and thus resorted to such a ploy.
