Badal rakes up 1984 genocide issue

Sangrur, Punjab: Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today addressed a rally in favour of SAD candidate from Sangrur Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa at a grain market near Bhawanigarh. He spoke about the massacre of Sikhs in 1984 in Delhi and other parts of the country and blamed the Congress for it.

He said instead of expressing remorse over the massacre, then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi had justified it.

He alleged that AAP candidates were in the fray only to help the Congress and weaken the BJP. He lashed out at Surjit Singh Barnala and Manpreet Badal for joining hands with the Congress.

Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa, Finance Minister Parminder Singh Dhindsa and Chief Parliamentary Secretary Parkash Chand Garg also spoke at the rally.
