LUDHIANA: Senior leaders and workers of Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and its ally BJP gave a hero's welcome to two Youth Akali Dal (YAD) leaders who were released from Ludhiana Central Jail, after getting bail in Rajiv Gandhi statue defacement case. Huge crowds of SAD-BJP workers stood and started showering flower petals on them as accused Gurdeep Singh Gosha and Meetpal Singh Dugri came out of the jail premises. They were later also presented a siropa before they entered a pick-up jeep. A procession followed their vehicle, which involved hundreds of vehicles in a cavalcade. Gosha said he had no regrets for his actions. “Congress leaders have cleaned black paint from the statue of Rajiv Gandhi but how will they clean his black acts due to which thousands of Sikhs were massacred in 1984? How will they remove black paint of killings associated with Gandhi's name. It is shocking that even after conviction of Sajjan Kumar, Congress president Rahul Gandhi is not accepting that Congress leadership was indeed involved in this genocide.”
