CHANDIGARH: Sukhpal Singh Khaira AAP MLA and former Leader of Oppositiion today sought Capt. Amarinder Singh’s stand on the likely elevation of Kamalnath as CM of Madhya Pradesh, in view of his serious involvement in the 1984 Sikh genocide.

In a statement issued here Khaira said that When Kamal Nath who is a key suspect in the 1984 massacre of Sikhs is likely to be elevated as Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh should clarify his stand on this, said Khaira in a press statement released. Kamal Nath’s presence outside Rakabganj Gurudwara near Parliament, during the massacre, was confirmed not only by then Indian Express journalist Sanjay Suri but two very senior police officers - Commissioner Subhash Tandan, and Additional Commissioner Gautam Kaul was also confirmed. Khaira said, even Nanawati Commission questioned him and termed his reply vague. There is enough evidence against him to be prosecuted but for all these years he was saved by Congress and then BJP also did little in this regard, said Khaira.

Will Captain Amarinder Singh, who does not even blink when he maligns Sikh politicians of Canada on the directions of his bosses in Delhi, now show the courage to speak on the issue. He should remember that evidence against Kamal Nath is much stronger than what Captain had anything against Canadian defence Minister Harjit Singh Sajjan. Notably, till date Captain has not presented even an iota of evidence against him.

Khaira said that recently he pretended grandstanding on issue of Kartarpur Sahib Corridor by opposing it and has been claiming that he has his own views on every issue. "Now I ask him to show spine and give his views on Kamal Nath. Will he dare to ask Congress chief Rahul Gandhi not to name Kamal Nath as Madhya Pradesh CM"?
