In the forthcoming budget session, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will move a resolution demanding that the Punjab assembly pass a resolution declaring the 1984 anti-Sikh riots as ‘genocide’. A decision in this regard was taken at a meeting of senior AAP leaders held here Friday and attended by the Leader of Opposition, H S Phoolka, Bholath MLA Sukhpal Khaira and Kharar MLA Kanwar Sandhu.

The AAP wants that the state assembly should pass the resolution on the lines of the one passed by the Ontario provincial parliament in Canada in April this year describing the 1984 riots as ‘genocide’.

Speaking to The Indian Express, Khaira said it had been 33 years since the storming of Golden Temple took place and it was time that the documentation relating to Operation Blue Star is put in the public domain.
