PM uses Kartarpur to hit out at Congress
Mr. Modi came down on the Congress for the 1984 riots that took place following the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. He said be it Guru Nanak or Guru Gobind Singh, they had taught us to be on the side of justice.
Following the path shown by them, the Central government was trying to get justice for the people who suffered during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, Mr. Modi said. “The government is making efforts to get justice for the period of injustice which started in 1984. For decades, mothers, sisters, daughters and sons have shed tears, the law will deliver justice, wipe [their] tears,” he said referring to the riots. Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, former Chief Justice of India J.S. Khehar and several Sikh leaders were present at the event.
