Chief Minister Captain Amarinder on Monday trashed Sukhbir Singh Badal’s remark on Rajiv Gandhi as “a conspiracy to incite and divide the Sikh community by defaming the late former Prime Minister”.

Slamming the SAD chief for the “brazen falsehoods” unleashed on the eve of Rajiv Gandhi’s birth anniversary, the CM said the former PM’s name never came up during or after the 1984 riots, and was being propped by the BJP and the Akalis in a desperate bid to garner Sikh votes. By repeatedly lying about the issue, they have been trying to manipulate the facts, which clearly showed that Rajiv was in no way complicit in the 1984 riots, he said.
