WITHDRAW BHARAT RATNA CONFERRED UPON RAJIV GANDHI
New Delhi 19. November, 2015. 31 years back on this day i.e. 19th November 1984, Shri Rajiv Gandhi the then Prime Minister of India had justified the killing of 3000 innocent citizens of this Country by saying that “WHEN THE BIG TREE FALLS THE EARTH SHAKES”. The huge crowd, whom Shri Rajiv Gandhi was addressing at Boat Club, lauded this justification of Shri Raj, Gandhi by Clapping. This crowd mostly comprised of the workers of Congress and Congress leaders who had indulged in the killing of the Sikhs just 2 weeks earlier.
Further, Shri Rajiv Gandhi rewarded the leaders whose names prominently figured in killing of the Sikhs. Name of
Jagdish Tytler appeared in newspaper and also in the reports of the Human Rights group. Tytler was made the Minister for the first time in December 1984. The name of H K L Bhagat prominently figured in killing of the Sikhs. Bhagat was promo. from State Minister to full-fledged Cabinet Minister in December 1984. Rajiv Gandhi government did not even register cases. For Rajiv Gandhi government thousands of these Sikhs killed meant nothing. He didn’t even bother to count the dead bodies of these innocent citizens. His Home Minister gave statement in Parliament on 14th November that only 650 Sikhs were killed throughout the country.
On 17th November Atal Bihari Vajpayee released a list of 2800 Sikhs killed in Delhi alone. The Congress celled Vajpayee Anti-National. It took Rajiv government 3 years to finally come out with official figure of 2736 Sikhs killed in Delhi.
The video-footage of Rajiv Gandhi speech is played today during the Press conference and a copy is given to
A Prime Minister who takes 3 years even to count the dead bodies of innocent citizen killed in open broad day- light in the Capital, A Prime Minister who justifies the killing of the innocent citizens, definitely does not deserve Bharat Ratna.
We therefore call upon the government to withdraw the Bharat Ratna conferred upon Rajiv Gandhi.

Sardar R P Singh
