Arun Jaitley hails Sajjan Kumar’s conviction, takes a dig at Congress for choosing Kamal Nath as CM

Opinion Poll: BJP leader Arun Jaitley Monday welcomed the conviction of Congress leader Sajjan Kumar in a 1984 anti-Sikh riot case and also took a swipe at the opposition party for choosing Kamal Nath as Madhya Pradesh chief minister, claiming that Sikhs consider him “culpable” in the violence against the community. 

Kamal Nath, who took oath as chief minister of the central Indian state on Monday, has always denied any role in the riots against Sikhs following the assassination of Indira G andhi in October 1984. 

The Congress has maintained that due process of law is being followed and the issue should not be politicised. 

Jaitley dubbed Kumar, who was convicted by the Delhi High Court in a 1984 riots case and sentenced him to imprisonment for life, a “symbol” of the anti-Sikh “genocide” and said the country had never seen murders on a bigger scale than this.
