Pitroda, a close aide of Rahul Gandhi and Overseas Congress' head, on Thursday said, 'hua to hua' (So what, it happened) about the anti-Sikh riots. He made this remark in response to a question on the riots by a newsman in Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh.
He later tendered an apology for the remarks, from which the Congress has distanced itself.
He alleged that Congress leaders had provoked "the unruly mob against the Sikhs".
