New Delhi: Indian Defence Minister Arun Jaitley’s claim that the Ontario parliament’s Sikh Genocide 1984 was an exaggeration of the facts stands exposed in wake of the fact that similar motion was passed by Delhi State Assembly itself on June 30, 2015.
Interestingly, the motion which clearly referred to the events of November 1984 as “genocide” was support by BJP MLAs in the state assembly of Delhi. The motion was moved by the then AAP MLA from Rajouri Garden- Jarnail Singh and it was passed by the house unanimously.
Notably, the Sikh Genocide 1984 motion passed by the Delhi state legislature on June 30, 2015 is accessible through the official website of the Delhi State Assembly. The copy of the motion was last accessed by SSN from Delhi assembly’s website on April 19, 2017 at 17:05 (IST) at the time of publishing this news.
FULL TEXT OF THE SIKH GENOCIDE 1984 MOTION passed by Delhi State Assembly:
5. Motion Under Rule-107:-
Sh. Jarnail Singh (Rajouri Garden) to move the following Motion:
This House strongly condemns the Sikh genocide happened 30years back in November 1984 and pays homage to the people killed. This House also expresses its resentment that the victims are still knocking about from pillar to post for the want of Justice and are still waiting for it.
This House requests the Govt. of India that cases be registered under appropriate sections of IPC after taking cognizance of the affidavit of Sh. Abhishek Verma against Jagdish Tytler in which he has disclosed that the latter had influenced the evidences and sent crores of Rupees through Hawala. Apart from it, immediate action be taken against the culprits. The SIT constituted in this regard should timely submit its report and the Delhi Police should open the closed cases and an impartial agency should investigate into the matter and the compensation of the victims be disbursed as soon as possible.
