Chandigarh: Lashing out at chief minister Prakash Singh Badal for his show of solidarity with Gujarat chief minister Narinder Modi, congress has demanded an unconditional apology from Badal for lend support to the communal approach of his Gujarat counterpart.
In a communiquÃ©, congress legislator Khaira said that the chief minister by urging people to follow the path of Modi was tantamount to instigating people to indulge in spreading communal hatred in the country.
It not only exposes the double standards of Badal but has also deeply hurt the feeling of minorities, he said.
The congress MLA from Bholanath has questioned the chief minister stance and asked for an explanation as to what was the difference between the innocent Muslims killed in the riots with Modi as the chief minister and innocent Sikhs killed in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
Badal should also tender an apology to our Muslim brethren of Punjab, whom he has been misleading in the state, said Khaira.
He has also asked the chief minister whether he considered Sikhs to be a minority and had no concerns for other minorities such as Muslims and Christians.
