Priyanka faces protest over Pitroda's remarks

Hundreds of victims of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots on Tuesday protested against the visit of Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi here for campaigning in favour of her party's candidate Sunil Jakhar.

The protesters pointed out the statement of Congress leader Sam Pitroda's 'hua-to-hua' remark to describe the 1984 violence to oppose her visit.

Gandhi was accompanied by Jakhar, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, party's Punjab in-charge Asha Kumari and Cabinet Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu.

A day earlier, at a rally in Khanna town, Congress President Rahul Gandhi said he told Pitroda to apologize to the nation for his remarks and said those guilty should be punished.
