This is not the first time Bagga has raked up the issue of the Sikh genocide, a community he is a part of.

New Delhi: Tajinder Bagga has done it again. The BJP leader who has come to be known as the ‘poster man’, has plastered the entire Lutyens Delhi late Thursday evening with posters demanding the Bharat Ratna conferred on late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi be taken back. His argument is that the former Prime Minister infamously said, “When a big tree falls, the earth shakes” in the aftermath of the assassination of Indira Gandhi; thus legitimizing the Sikh onslaught across the country, particularly in Delhi.
Bagga, in fact, has called Rajeev ‘Danga Babu’. He has put up those posters around Janpath, Raisina Road, ITO, Pandit Panth Marg and all crucial intersections.
This is not the first time Bagga has raked up the issue of Sikh genocide, a community he is a part of. A few days back when Congress president Rahul Gandhi absolved the party of any responsibilities of the anti-Sikh riots of 1984 during his Euro trip, Bagga put up similar posters across Delhi condemning it.
But this time he has gone a step further and requested the award- wapsi brigade to join him in his endeavour. More than a year back the country suddenly woke up to a section of the intelligentsia who queued up to return their awards to condemn what they called ‘atmosphere of intolerance’. Bagga has taken a dig at them by extending this invitation, asking them to stand by his cause as well.
Interestingly, the Delhi BJP leader has also changed his Twitter profile photo where he is seen holding a placard that reads, “Dear award-wapsi authors/filmmakers, I am a Sikh, I am an Indian. Thousands of my community were killed, bunt alive, hundreds of sisters were raped by Congress leaders in my own nation…I beg your support, I demand justice…I want the return of Bharat Ratna of murderer Rajiv Gandhi who said after thousands of murders, “When a big tree falls, the earth shakes”. Hope you will support me.”
Justice may be a long road ahead for the victims of 1984 massacre, but Tajinder Bagga has surely kept the pot boiling forth Congress party, many of its top leaders are accused in this mayhem.
