New Delhi, Feb 27: Shiromani Akali Dal MP Naresh Gujral said on Thursday that the Delhi Police''s "inaction" towards protecting the lives and properties of minorities in the national capital is "reminiscent" of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
The lawmaker, whose party is a BJP ally, said no one wants a repeat of what happened in 1984.
Speaking to PTI after shooting off a letter to Delhi Police chief Amulya Patnaik, Gujral, the son of former prime minister I K Gujral, said that minorities in certain parts of Delhi are "frightened".
"Because their lives and properties have not been protected by the Delhi Police, which is very similar to what we saw in 1984. It''s shocking."
