'You should be ashamed': Rahul Gandhi slams Sam Pitroda for 1984 riots remark
New Delhi : While Bharatiya Janata Party and Prime Minister Narendra Modi are attacking Sam Pitroda for his controversial remark on 1984 riots, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi also said the leader should be ashamed of himself and seek apology from the nation.
Speaking at an election rally Rahul Gandhi said, "What Sam Pitroda said about 1984 (anti-Sikh riots) was totally wrong and he should seek an apology from the country. I am saying this publicly and I also said the same to him over phone. Pitroda ji, what you had said was completely wrong and you should be ashamed of yourself. You should seek public apology."
Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh was also present at the stage.
Earlier last week, Sam Pitroda had brushed off 1984 anti-Sikh riots by saying, "hua to hua (Whatever happened, happened)."
This was the second time Rahul Gandhi slammed Pitroda for his remark. He had earlier tweeted his disapproval over the remark and the party had distanced itself from it.
Demanding an apology from the nation, Rahul Gandhi had said that his remark is completely out of the line.
