Training the guns on Congress leader Sam Pitroda over his “hua to hua” comment on the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah said the remark was an attack on secular ethos.
In response to BJP’s claim that the “instructions to kill” in 1984 had come from the office of the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, Sam Pitroda had called it another lie of the BJP.
Slamming Congress leader Sam Pitroda, Amit Shah tweeted, “Agony of the entire Sikh community. Suffering of all those Sikh families killed by Congress leaders in 1984. Attack on Delhi’s secular ethos. All summed up in these three words by Sam Pitroda – Hua To Hua.”
As he attached the video of Sam Pitroda making the remark, BJP chief Amit Shah said India will never forgive “murderer Congress” for its sins.
Sam Pitroda said the BJP was attacking Congress to distort facts, divide and hide their own failures.
“Sad that they have nothing positive to offer. I acknowledged the pain of my Sikh brothers and sisters during difficult times in 1984 and deeply feel for the atrocities that happened. But these are things from past that are not really relevant to this election which is all about what did Modi government do for the last five years,” Sam Pitroda tweeted on Friday.
