Amit Shah hits out at Congress over conviction of Sajjan Kumar in 1984 anti-Sikh riots
Two weeks after the defeat in the Assembly polls, BJP president Amit Shah claimed that 2019 will not be ordinary elections.
While interacting with the booth workers of BJP in New Delhi on Sunday, Amit Shah launched a scathing attack on Congress party over the conviction of Sajjan Kumar in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
Amit Shah said, “After Sajjan Kumar was sentenced for life, he resigned. I want to ask the Congress party where the justice for the victims until now was. The BJP constituted a Special Investigation Team and made sure they are exposed.”
He further claimed that the Narendra Modi government has done everything for the victims. “The victims were given Rs 5 lakh, public prosecutors were appointed to help the victims,” he added,
The BJP president also hit out at the Aam Aadmi Party over former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi’s Bharat Ratna row in the Delhi Assembly following the conviction. Taking on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the BJP president accused him of making hollow promises.
“He promised 500 new colleges. I want to ask him where are the colleges. Where are the hospitals? Mohalla clinics doesn’t have doctors or medicines,” Amit Shah said, adding that the Kejriwal government hasn’t lived up to poll promises of WiFi connectivity and security in the state in the last four years.
On the other hand, while addressing booth level workers in Chennai, Madurai, Tiruchirappally and Tiruvallur in Tamil Nadu via video conference on Sunday, PM Modi hit out at the opposition Mahagatbandhan for the Lok Sabha polls.
He said that it was an “unholy alliance” of various political parties for “personal survival and people will see through the “incoherent alliance of rich dynasties”.
