Chandigarh – The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on Thursday demanded the registration of a criminal case against former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi for allegedly o rchestrating the Sikh genocide even as it asked the Congress president Rahul Gandhi to expel leaders like Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar who had executed the massacre of Sikhs in Delhi in 1984.In a statement here, SAD spokesman Virsa Singh Valtoha appreciated the stance taken by a Punjab congress leader who held the ex-prime minister Rajiv Gandhi responsible for massacre of Sikhs in 1984 during a television debate. “It is obvious that the Congress spokesman is privy to some facts of the case due to which he had made this statement,” he said, adding that recently one of the massacre accused, Jagdish Tytler, had admitted to driving Rajiv Gandhi in parts of Delhi after the assassination of then PM Indira Gandhi following which those areas saw the maximum killing of Sikhs in the city.Valtoha said that it was a good sign that a Congress leader Dr Gurpreet Sandhu had listened to his conscience and named the real culprits of the cruellest inhuman act in the history of our country. “Dr Sandhu has rightly demanded registration of a criminal case against former PM Rajiv Gandhi in this case. He has also pointed out that Rajiv Gandhi turned a blind eye to the massacre of innocent Sikhs,” he said.
