Srinagar: Senior Congress leader and former minister Salman Khurshid has said that his party does have blood on its hands and that people should learn from that mistake, media reports said on Tuesday.
“I’m a part of the Congress so let me accept that we have blood on our hands,” said Khurshid at an event in Aligarh Muslim University according to reports.
According to reports, Khurshid was replying to a question asked by a former AMU student, about the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and the riots following the Babri Masjid demolition in 1992, when the Congress was in power in New Delhi.
It was in reference to these instances that Khurshid talked about the Congress having blood on its hands. He said he understood why he was being asked this question.
“This is the reason you’re telling us that if someone attacks you then we (Congress) must not come forward to protect you,” he said.
