Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday expressed his strong disapproval of remarks of party leader Sam Pitroda concerning the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, saying these were completely out of line and he should apologise.
“I think what Sam Pitroda Ji said is completely out of line and he should apologise for it. What Sam Pitroda has said is absolutely and completely out of line and is not appreciated. I will be communicating this to him directly. He must apologise for his comment,” Gandhi said in a Facebook post.
He said Congress leaders – former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his mother and former Congress President Sonia Gandhi – had apologised and the guilty of the riots have to be punished.
