SAD to raise anti-Sikh riots issue in Parliament

Ferozepur, Nov 11 (PTI) The ruling SAD in Punjab will raise the 1984 anti-Sikh riots issue during the winter session of Parliament to combat what it called Congress's attempts to scuttle trial of its leaders including Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar in connection with the carnage.

Announcing this while addressing a series of 'sangat darshan' programmes in Jalalabad constituency here, Punjab Deputy Chief Minister and SAD President Sukhbir Singh Badal said his party will make all effort to ensure that the ongoing trials in cases related to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots were expedited and brought to their logical conclusion.

Asserting that the party is all set to raise the issue during the forthcomiong winter session of Parliament along with like-minded parties, he said the alleged perpetrators of the Sikh massacre would be definitely brought to book.
