Delhi elections 2020: All India Riot Victims Relief Committee-1984 (AIRVRC), led by Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), on Wednesday announced the support to BJP in the upcoming Delhi Assembly elections 2020. AIRVRC president Kuldip Singh Bhogal announced the same after a meeting of executive committee of the organisation.
Also, AIRVRC has extended support to the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and stated that “it does not take citizenship, but grants it to minorities, including Sikhs, persecuted in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan”. Bhogal said that “AIRVRC has decided to support BJP in the election and the CAA.”
While praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi for ensuring “justice” for riot victims, he said that “Constituting SIT and re-investigation of the riot cases which were deliberately closed by Congress-led UPA government, preparing a case against accused, are some of the steps that PM Narendra Modi government took in favour of Sikhs.”
Bhogal added that “Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the first Prime Minister who had said that the anti-Sikh riots would be remembered as a black day. PM Narendra Modi took this to a more practical level by ensuring justice.” While discussing CAA, Bhogal urged Muslims not to fall prey to rumours spread. Meanwhile, he asked them to call off their protests in Delhi including those at Shaheen Bagh.
