Chandigarh, October 19, 2023: As per media reports families of victims killed or affected by Sikh Genocide 1984 expressed their dissatisfaction over the justice meted out by the Indian Government at a press conference held here on Wednesday.
According to the news published in The Tribune, a protest will be organised at Ludhiana on November 5 “if the government did not listen to our genuine demands”, they said.
President, Sikh Victims’ Family Welfare Society, Surjit Singh Dugri, demanded the restoration of red cards for the families.
Victims of the Sikh Genocide 1984 , who were rehabilitated in Ludhiana, have alleged that the AAP government had issued orders to cancel their identity cards, popularly known as red cards, and the move would deny them all kinds of social welfare benefits.
The Genocide took place in Delhi and other cities of the country, a day after then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated by her Sikh bodyguards.
