BJP today demanded apology from SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav for having ordered firing on “karsewaks” in Ayodhya in 1990 in which 16 people were killed, saying just “feeling sad” would not console the families of the people who died.
“The “karsewaks” on whom the Mulayam government ordered firing were barehanded. In such a case, firing on them was a terrible crime,” BJP representative VIjay Bahadur Pathak said here. He said that the firing was done during a period when it had as of now been declared that “karsewa” would have been symbolic.
