BJP targets Chidambaram for his 1984 remarks

BJP criticised Home Minister P Chidambaram for his remarks on the 1984 anti-Sikh riots that Sikhs should "forget and move on", saying the party will "not forget" the mistakes.



New Delhi: BJP on Saturday criticised Home
Minister P Chidambaram for his remarks on the 1984 anti-Sikh riots that Sikhs should "forget and move on", saying the party
will "not forget" the mistakes.

"Chidambaram has been talking about forgetting
corruption, forgetting 2G spectrum scam and now forgetting the
anti-sikh riots. We will not allow that to happen", said BJP
spokesman Shahnawaz Hussain.
Hussain said: "Chidambaram had been talking about
auctioning of 2G Spectrum, but accorded post-facto sanction to
Telecom Minister A Raja`s Spectrum allocation in 2008, even as
he talks about forgetting corruption and moving on".
Chidambaram today said that "it was time to forget the
1984 anti-sikh riots and move on to build a new India, where
every citizen irrespective of faith had equal place".
