Akali Dal leader Manjinder Sirsa has posed a stringent warning to Rahul Gandhi and Congress party from giving the chief minister chair of Madhya Pradesh to Kamath Nath, citing his alleged involvement in the 1984 riots.
He mounted a massive allegation against the Gandhi family of "conspiring" the 1984 attacks.
He said, "You can control the CBI or judiciary but you will not be able to save them. And the day people like Sajjan Kumar, Jagdish Tytler, and Kamal Nath will be punished, I would like to remind the Gandhi family will suffer for the deed, the 1984 riots conspiracy was played in their residence when Rajiv Gandhi planned to kill people. No one will escape."
"If you make Kamal Nath the Chief Minister, you will have to repent for the decision. This is our promise to the 8000 dead in 1984," he added.
Sirsa said, "We are not the ones to scare. We have the sentiments. Thousands of you all can gather and kill an innocent, often a lot of dogs can together even kill a tiger. But inside the forest does the Tiger's enthusiasm get over? Does the fear of a tiger get over? These attempts of ganging up against us do not fear us, neither have we ever been afraid, nor we will be in the future."
Swearing to persist this animosity against the Gandhi family, he added, "People like Sajjan Kumar and Jagdish Tytler, Gandhi family is the enemy of Sikh. We will endure this enmity."
This "warning" comes on the day Congress is set to announce the next Chief Minister of all the three states they won in the assembly elections- Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.
Sirsa took to Twitter on Thursday morning, writing- "I warn @RahulGandhi -Sikhs have been patient enough but don't instigate them with your decision to make @OfficeofKNath the CM of MP! History shows when someone dares to be Sikhs’ enemy; Sikhs throttle the cruel oppressors with befitting & memorable response"
The Congress was the single-largest party, winning 114 seats in the state of MP after the recent assembly elections. They managed to just usurp the incumbent ruling BJP, which won 109 seats. The Others, which comprised of BSP, GGP, and Independents won seven seats. Currently, there is an alleged tug-of-war between Kamal Nath and Jyotiraditya Scindia to occupy the CM chair.
