AAP's apology sought over resolution on Rajiv Gandhi's Bharat Ratna withdrawal

AAP's apology sought over resolution on Rajiv Gandhi's Bharat Ratna withdrawal

New Delhi, Dec 22 (UNI) Terming as 'shameful' and 'poisonous' the resolution passed in the Delhi Assembly calling for withdrawing Bharat Ratna given to late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, the Congress on Saturday demanded an apology from the ruling Aam Aadmi party in Delhi.

In a tweet, AICC spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi said, 'AAP party has yet again proved that it is a party with zero ethics&zero values. A party that is just a cheap copy of BJP cannot should not be taken seriously. What they have initiated through that resolution in the Delhi Assembly is shameful, poisonous & they should apologise for it.'

Reacting to the resolution, Congress leader Arvinder S Lovely said, 'Shameful. The party, which did not find any Sikh worth of giving representation in cabinet in both terms, is trying to show itself as sympathiser of Sikhs. Rajivji sacrificed his life for nation, disrespecting him only shows their petty mindset and expose their affiliations.'

According to reports, a resolution passed by the Delhi Legislative Assembly on Friday demanded punishment for those guilty in the 1984 riots. It also demanded that the Bharat Ratna given to late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi be withdrawn.
