Agitated over Indian Overseas Congress (IOC) chief Sam Pitroda's remark on 1984 anti-Sikh riots, a section of Sikh community as a sign of protest showed posters reading 'hua toh hua' during Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's roadshow here. Pitroda, while commenting on 1984 anti-Sikh riots last week told ANI, "It happened in 1984, so what? (1984 hua toh hua)."

Priyanka was accompanied by Chief Minister Amarinder Singh and Punjab Congress chief Sunil Kumar Jakhar in the roadshow. Hitting out at Priyanka, Union Cabinet Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal tweeted, "Instead of apologising for party & family role in #1984SikhGenocide & attack on Sri Harmandar Sahib, #PriyankaGandhi chose to speak abt sachai ki rajneeti of @RahulGandhi. Strange sachai which allows Cong to justify '84 with "hua to hua" & forbids regret for mass killing of Sikhs."

Punjab, where 13 parliamentary constituencies are at stake will go to polls on May 19 in the last phase of Lok Sabha elections.
