Rahul Gandhi denies Congress’ involvement in the 1984 Sikh Genocide

Congress president Rahul Gandhi late on Friday stirred up another controversy while on a two-day visit to the UK as he claimed that the Congress party had no role to play in the 1984 Genocide.The Congress chief described the massacre as a “very painful tragedy” but said that the Congress party had no criminal culpability in the case. Rahul, responding to a question on the Sikh Genocide at the UK Parliament meeting, said, “I have no confusion in my mind about that. It was a tragedy, it was a painful experience. You say that the Congress party was involved in that, I don’t agree. Certainly, there was violence, there was a tragedy.”
