I was misquoted on anti-Sikh riots: Gadkari

Nagpur: BJP President Nitin Gadkari on Monday said he has not given any clean chit to the Congress in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

“I have not said any such thing and I have been quoted out of context,” he said here.

Gadkari was reacting to a radio report in which he was quoted as sayig that some people might be involved in those riots (anti-Sikh riots) but it would not be entirely correct to say that the riots were initiated by the (Congress) government.

“My statement was totally misinterpreted. The reference was to riots in Gujarat where Chief Minister Narendra Modi was being blamed and held responsible,” he said.
