Activists of Ruling Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today held a protest march and burnt effigies of Congress president Sonia Gandhi and other leaders for the party’s alleged “role” in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
Effigies of Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar for their alleged “involvement” in the riots in Delhi, were also burnt.
Led by SAD’s Kapurthala district president Sarwan Singh Kular, the protesters assembled on the premises of local Gurdwara Akalian and marched from there through the city markets before converging outside bus stand along the National Highway 1 where the effigies were set ablaze.
During the march, anti-Congress slogans were raised while protestors demanded justice for the victims of the 1984 riots.
