New Delhi: Shiromani Akali Dal leader Naresh Gujral said on Thursday that the Delhi Police”s “inaction” towards protecting the lives and properties of minorities in the national capital is “reminiscent” of what happened during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
The Rajya Sabha MP said no one would want a repeat of 1984.
Speaking to media after giving a letter to Delhi Police chief Amulya Patnaik, Gujral, said that minorities in certain parts of the city are “frightened”.
“Because their lives and properties have not been protected by the Delhi Police, which is very similar to what we saw in 1984. It”s shocking.”
In his letter, the Rajya Sabha MP has slammed the Delhi Police for allegedly not acting on his complaint in which he had requested the cops to come to the aid of 16 people of the minority community.
He also mentioned that the trapped individuals were aided by neighbours who came to their rescue. While requesting the concerned officials to take note of the matter, Naresh Gujral wrote, “If this is the situation when a Member of Parliament makes a complaint personally, it is not surprising that certain parts of Delhi continue to burn while the police stand by apathetically.”
Gujral said “When a member of parliament”s complaint is not paid heed to, one can imagine the plight of the common man. Nobody wants a repeat of 1984,”.
