Wednesday August 10, 10:22 PM /// Jagdish Tytler submits resignation to Sonia Gandhi /// [Rajiv- This clearly shows that Sonia Gandhi is the Prime Minister and Manmohan Singh is just a puppet, like Mir Jaffier Alikhan the Nawab of Bengal, as ministers are supposed to submit resignation to PRIME MINISTER. WHEN A PROSTITUTE IS THE HEAD, no wonder the whole nation has become full of Pimps, aids patients, corrupt officials, pick-pockets, and prostitutes. RESIGNATION IS NOT ENOUGH, WE WANT PROSECUTION, AND NOT LIKE THE SHAM THAT WAS CONDUCTED BEFORE.] /// New Delhi, Aug. 10 (ANI): Union Minister of State for Non-Resident Indians Jagdish Tytler submitted his resignation to Congress President Sonia Gandhi this evening following uproar over his alleged involvement in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots after publication of the Nanavati Report. /// Sonia Gandhi would now forward his resignation to the Prime Minister for his consideration. /// Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, earlier, made a statement in the Lok Sabha during the discussion on the issue. He said that the Centre would make all efforts to bring justice to the victims of the riots and punish who are guilty. /// There were speculations since this morning that Tytler would be asked for resignation as Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was understood to have discussed the matter with the United Progressive Alliance Chairperson and Congress President Sonia Gandhi. /// Pressure was mounting on Dr. Singh from all corners including the UPA allies to ask Tytler to resign. /// The Nanavati Commission, which probed the infamous incident, has named several Congress leaders, including Jagdish Tytler, Sajjan Kumar and H.K.L.Bhagat for their alleged role in the riots. But it said that there was not enough evidence to prosecute them. Tytler, however, maintains that he had no role to play in the incident. /// The Government's Action Taken Report (ATR) has exonerated these leaders on the ground that "a person cannot be prosecuted simply on the basis of probabilities." /// The report, however, cleared Congress Headquarters, Late former Prime Ministers Rajiv Gandhi and the then Home Minister Late P V Narsimha Rao of having hand in staging the anti-Sikh riots. /// The anti-Sikh riots of 1984 had started in the immediate aftermath of the assassination of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by two of her personal bodyguards, both of whom were Sikhs. The attacks led to the massacre of over 2,700 Sikhs in Delhi alone and over 3,000 across the country. (ANI) /// -- ............................000000000
