Co-ordination Committee (APSCC) chairman Jagmohan Singh Raina
on Tuesday appealed to President Pratibha Patil to grant clemency
to Balwant Singh Rajoana, who is scheduled to be hanged on
March 31.

"India being the largest democracy of the world should
show restrain in the decision of hanging of Rajoana...," a
press release, quoting Raina, said.

"We condemn this hanging, as this has more of political
motive rather than a legal aspect to it. It is all politically
motivated and political party-based politics which is bent
upon to divide the people on the basis of religion, caste,

colour and creed," Raina said.
