1984 anti-Sikh riot culprits must be punished irrespective of identity: Rahul

TIL Desk/National/New Delhi/  “I am very clear on 1984 that anybody, regardless of where he comes from, if he has harmed members of the minority community, he should be punished,” asserted Congress president Rahul Gandhi while speaking about alleged insecurities among minorities in the country.

In an exclusive interview, ahead of his maiden visit to UAE, the Gandhi scion said, “We will punish those who think that they can get away by crushing India. They should not be under the impression that they can crush the weak people. I am very clear on 1984 that anybody, regardless of where he comes from, if he has harmed members of the minority community, he should be punished.

The legal system will make sure that the justice is done (in 1984 cases) and we will allow the justice system to work. The legal structure that we have, the laws that we have, are good enough to deal with the problems as long as institutions like the Supreme Court are free to do their work.” While talking about alliances for 2019 Lok Sabha election, Rahul exhumed confidence about party’s ability in Uttar Pradesh and said that the Congress will surprise people in the state.
