Even before the senior Congress leader Kamal Nath was elected as the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, there was a strong protest against him for his involvement in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. His aide and Congress leader Sajjan Kumar was already convicted and was sentenced for lifetime imprisonment. Now it seems like the current Madhya Pradesh CM Kamal Nath will follow his friend’s path.
In a sensational series of sting operations conducted by the Republic TV, eyewitness of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots have nailed senior Congressman Kamal Nath, Senior Congressman Jagdish Tytler, Sajjan Kumar and several other Congress leaders for their involvement in the riots.
The report said “One eyewitness recounts how Tytler asked for a Gurudwara to be burnt and another eyewitness recalls how Kamal Nath shouted slogans like “Maaro, they killed our mother” as he incited the mobs”.
A man named Ramesh who had served in jail for 4 years for his involvement in the anti-Sikh riots claimed that “Police themselves got people killed. Police signaled that the fight is over. The ones who were hidden came out, signalled and gave orders to kill. This has also happened”. When asked if the orders were given to the police by Sajjan Kumar, he said “When they get orders from above, that’s when something happens”.
Another person named Mukhtiyar Singh who was an eyewitness in the 1984 riots revealed that the current Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh was involved in the riot. He said that Kamal Nath was in a Gurdwara inciting the mob. But Kamal Nath had denied these charges.
Dismissing the claims of Kamal Nath, Mukhtiyar Singh said “Kamal Nath is lying. He was inside”, said Singh. Shockingly, he also said that “He (Kamal Nath) was in the Gurdwara compound”.
Mukhtiyar Singh revealed in the sting operation that Kamal Nath had given a call to Sikhs by saying “Maaro, they killed our mother (Indira Gandhi).
