Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Monday said there was no FIR or charge sheet filed against him in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and questioned the 'politics' behind the raising of the issue now.
Nath was speaking to reporters after taking oath as the 18th chief minister of the state.
"I took oath today...I had taken oath several times in (in the past), but none said anything then. There is no case against me, there is no FIR or charge sheet against me. I was also in-charge of (the party affairs in) Delhi," Kamal Nath said.
Senior Congress leader Sajjan Kumar was on Monday convicted and sentenced to life term for "remainder of his natural life" in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case by the Delhi High Court, which said the riots were a "crime against humanity" perpetrated by those who enjoyed "political patronage".
