The survivors of the 1984 Sikh Genocide are staying put in “horrible” conditions in the national capital and the Delhi government will repair their houses, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said today.

“The 1984 victims and refugees from Punjab (are) staying in horrible conditions. Delhi government today decided to repair their houses,” he tweeted.

Assembly elections in Punjab are slated to be held early next year and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has emerged as one of the main contenders for power in the state.
Arvind Kejriwal Also tweeted:
SC judgment yet another tight slap on dictatorial Modi govt. Hope Modi ji wud learn n now stop interfering in democratically elected govts

In June, the AAP had alleged that the Centre was incapable of providing justice to the victims of the anti-Sikh riots in Delhi that occurred in the wake of assassination of the then prime minister Indira Gandhi.

The party also demanded that the Delhi government should be allowed to form its own SIT (Special Investigative Team) to probe victims.
