New Delhi: After Union Home Ministry asked the SIT to inquire the closed cases of 1984 riots to investigate afresh case against Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath, Shiromani Akali Dal leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa launched a scathing attack on MP CM and claimed that he too will go to jail like Sajjan Kumar for his involvement in 1984 anti-Sikhs riots.

Talking to reporters, Sirsa said that once Kamal Nath’s involvement in 1984 riots is proved in the court after completion of fresh inquiry he will be behind bars.

Last year in December, Congress leader Sajjan Kumar was convicted in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case and was sentenced to life imprisonment by the Delhi High Court. While passing the sentence the court observed: “truth will prevail and justice will be done.”

Kumar resigned from the Congress party the next day with his lawyer saying that they will approach the Supreme Court of India.

The tainted leader was earlier acquitted in April 2013 by the Karkardooma district court.

Sirsa had earlier objected to the appointment of Kamal Nath as the CM of Madhya Pradesh.

Accusing the grand old party of shielding perpetrators of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots Sirsa alleged that Nath had played a role in the anti-Sikh pogrom riots that broke out in Delhi after the of the assassination of Indira Gandhi in 1984 by her Sikh bodyguards Satwant Singh and Beant Singh.

Talking to the media, Sirsa had said whenever Congress comes to power it not only protects but also rewards the people accused of instigating anti-Sikh massacre in the national capital.

Apart from Delhi, Sikhs in other states like Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh were also targeted.

Several key Congress leaders were accused of instigating mobs including former union minister HKL Bhagat, Congress leaders Jagdish Tytler, Congress lawmakers Lalit Makan and Dharam Das Shastri.
