The families of 1984 anti-Sikh riots victims took out a protest rally on Thursday and burned effigies of senior Congress leader Kamal Nath and Punjab Congress President Raja Warring in the Dugri area of Ludhiana.
This came in response to Raja Warring’s statement that Kamal Nath had no involvement in any crimes against Sikhs.
The 39th anniversary of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots was observed on November 20.
During a recent speech in Madhya Pradesh, Punjab Congress Chief Amrinder Singh Raja Warring said that party leader “Kamal Nath was not involved in any atrocities against Sikhs”. This seems to be a reference to Nath’s alleged role in the November 1984 massacre of Sikhs.

Now the court is set to hear final arguments on November 30, 2023.(ANI)
