S.Manjinder Singh Sirsa :Chief Minister of Delhi Sh. Arvind Kejriwal should desist from seeking political mileage from the wounds of the victims of 1984 anti-Sikh massacre

Chandigarh, 14July
 The declaration made by Chief Minister of Delhi Sh. Arvind Kejriwal about the repairing of the flats of 1984 anti-Sikh massacre victims; can clutch him into another controversy for him. The amount declared by the chief minister for this purpose is so meager that not to speak of repairing, the flats of the victims can not even be white-washed with this amount. 

 Delhi government was forced to made this declaration regarding repairing of the flats of the victims due to the constant and unrelenting struggle of S. Manjinder Singh Sirsa, General Secretary of DSGMC and Advisor to Dy. CM Punjab with State Minister Rank; about the help of the victims but the victims don't seem to be much enthusiastic about this declaration since the amount declared for this purpose is too meager to properly repair their flats. For the last 2 years, S. Manjinder Singh Sirsa had written more than a dozen letters to the chief minister, apprising him about the grave situation being faced by the victims of 1984 anti-Sikh massacre and asking for sufficient help from Delhi government. In his letters, Sh. Sirsa threw light upon the issues of providing justice to the families of the victims, punishing the guilty of this massacre, need for waiving off the water and electricity bills in the colonies of the victims, repairing/renovation of the flats and cleanliness in the colony, providing employment to the youth turning adult in age, the progress of Punjabi language, appointments of Punjabi teachers and other issues related to the Sikh community. 

 Sh. Sirsa appealed that Mr. Kejriwal should desist from seeking political mileage from the wounds of the victims of 1984 anti-Sikh massacre. He said that helping these victims is the moral and constitutional responsibility of the Delhi government, which is not being fulfilled by the state government. But its chief minister remains eager to find opportunities to politicize the issues related to these victims. Delhi government should declare 1st November as "Black Day" and also should actually observe the day as a black day, the qualified members of the victims families should be instantly provided with government jobs, their debts should be waived off and the electricity connections being disconnected should be stopped immediately. Kejriwal government has been ignorant about most of the demands of the victims, due to which the life of the victim families has become very difficult. Sh. Manjinder Singh Sirsa termed the amount declared by Sh. Kejriwal for repairing of flats as "highly disappointing". Such meager amount is sufficient for proper repairing of the flats. Mr. Kejriwal remains eager to take political advantage from each and every issue but he never fully solves the problem from its roots. The same will happen in the case of repairing of the flats. Sh. Sirsa stated that the ironic aspect of Mr. Kejriwal's petty and dangerous politics is that the AAP leader is not an actual sympathizer of the Sikhs. Rather, he repeatedly exposes his lust for grabbing the political power. The same is being done by him in Delhi as well as in Punjab. The AAP leader wants to win the Punjab elections only by politicizing Sikh issues but his tricks won't be successful. Mr. Kejriwal has openly taken anti-Sikh stand in many issues like comparing AAP's election manifesto with Guru Granth Sahib, demolishing the decades old heritage Piao of Gurdwara Sis Ganj in Chandni Chowk, removing Punjabi language from the list of compulsory subjects in Delhi government's schools and taking anti-Punjab stand in Supreme Court in the issue of SYL canal. The people of Punjab have comprehended the highly complex reality of Mr. Kejriwal's politics, due to which he won't be successful in the elections of Punjab assembly.
