New Delhi :-The Delhi state assembly passed a motion condemning Sikh massacre of 1984. The motion was moved by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Jarnail Singh. Jarnail Singh, a former journalist, is member of Delhi state assembly from Rajauri Garden constituency.
Jarnail Singh, the MLA from Rajouri Garden, broke down in the Delhi Assembly on Tuesday while giving an emotional account of how his family members were killed in the 1984 sikh genocide. While moving a resolution on the 1984 riots, which was adoped by the Assembly, he urged Speaker Ram Niwas Goel to write to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to expedite the investigation in the over three decades old riot cases.
Jarnail Singh was unable to fight back his tears as he said, “This question is related to our honour. What answers will we give our children when they ask what happened to the perpetrators of the attacks? After 23 years of filing FIRs, there is no chargesheet in the case. Has this happened in any other case? Let these cases be re-opened. On our behalf, Speakerji, you please write to the PM and seek an appointment with him”.
Hari Nagar MLA Jagdeep supported also recounted the agonising ordeal he went through during that period. “A 13-year-old boy went from one police station to another, checking every corpse, looking for his father. That boy is now 45. I was that boy,” he said.
Pointing towards the three BJP MLAs in the House, he said, “If the three of them have a heart, let all 70 of us (Delhi MLAs) go to (Narendra) Modiji and seek speedy justice.”
