IK Gujral

If Narasimha Rao had listened to IK Gujaral, 1984 riots could have been avoided: Manmohan Singh

Speaking at an event to mark the 100th birth anniversary of IK Gujral, Manmohan Singh said, "When the incident took place, Gujral ji was so concerned that he went to the then home minister Narsimha Rao that very evening and said to him that the situation is so grave that it is necessary for the government to call the Army at the earliest. If that advice would have been heeded perhaps the 1984 massacre could have been avoided."
