Why do Sikhs support Congress in spite of 1984 riots led by Congress leaders?

Recommended Posts

Not sure if Kangress was popular & won immediately in Punjab after 1984. I have no time to dig though details.... Akalis were given many opportunities....The Badal family politics just focused on making money then again Kangress was chosen. It's like dealing with two parties to choose from. 

 

Canadian Sikh NRIs wanted Punjab to prosper & make a turn around towards progress so wanted people to try a new party instead of same old tried & tested ones. So AAP which showed lot of promises initially was preferred, many NRI's went and tried to educate people to try a New party, but that didn't work well, part blame could be on Kejriwal as well the way he was not clear cut in his decisions. 

 

After that, NRI Sikhs stopped investing in any land purchase in Punjab, avg price of farm land acreage fell from 25 lacs to 15 Lacs. Now may be even lower. Badals were so corrupt, people this time around got fed up of them & went back to Kangress.

 

Future of Punjab is fooked!!

Actually future of Punjab got saved by a whisker... thanks to Punjab voters. The moment they realised Khalistanis coming in large groups to campaign for AAP in every streets, they feared the worst days of terrorism in Punjab...

The power hungry Kejri was ready to parachute as CM of Punjab... Imagine Punjab Police at the disposal of Kejriwal and his gang giving free run to the Khalistanis to establish themselves...

 

Punjabi’s will never accept a non Sikh CM. The only (and better) option was to vote for Captain & Congress.

 

As an important frontline border state, I’d prefer Congress and Captain to be in charge than those pickpockets from AAP...

Why did the people of Punjab vote for Congress despite the fact that Congress was responsible for the Anti-Sikh riots in 1984?

State level politics has lot to do with local politics and leaders. Captain Amrinder singh has some real hold on jat sikh population. Hindu's too in punjab voted in large number for congress .

 

Prakash Singh Badal was last popular leader of Akali dal. In 2012 despite all surveys he led SAD BJP alliance to consecutive victory. But now he is very old Sukhbir and Harsimrat  are loosing grip. Moreover Majithia is considered as drug lord who is brother of Harsimrat.So don't expect people of punjab just voting to useless politicians just because 84.

^ All Canadian Sikh NRIs are considered Khalistanis by NRI Hindus?....Alright :wp3:

At the end of the day Sikhs in India are influenced by Hinduism and exposed to nationalism in India (for example singing the national anthem everyday in school). There's nothing wrong with that. However Sikhs abroad are not exposed to these things which gives them a different viewpoint which clearly irks some people.
