Sikhs Purify Bhagat Singh’s Statue After Priyanka Gandhi Pays Floral Tribute
Even after Congress leader Sam Pitroda clarified his ‘hua-toh-hua’ remarks over1984 anti-Sikh riots, it looks like Sikh community hasn’t forgotten the Congress party yet. Congress leader, Rahul Gandhi slammed senior party leader Sam Pitroda for his controversial ‘hua to hua’remarks saying that,” ‘I don’t appreciate this type of nonsense.” Priyanka Gandhi on 14thMay, payed floral tribute to the freedom fighters statue and started her road show in Indore’s Raj Mohalla area.A day after that, members of Sikh Community ‘purified’ the statue of freedom fighter Shaheed Bhagat Singh with milk and holy water. Upset with Congress leader Sam Pitroda’s remarks, protesters felt that Congress General Secretary Priyanka disrespected the statue by offering tributes. One of the protesters, Pritam Singh Luthra said,“We purified the statue with milk and holy water form Amritsar this morning.” The Indian National Congress had already faced a lot of flak for Sam Pitroda comment and once again Sikh Communities showed their anger in Indore.
