Congress president Rahul Gandhi has apparently asked party leader Sam Pitroda to apologise for his controversial ‘hua toh hua’ remark on the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, Gandhi said that he has been told to tender an apology.
“What Sam Pitroda said about 1984 is absolutely wrong and he should apologise to the nation for it. I told him this over the phone, I told him what he said was wrong, he should be ashamed and apologise publicly,” Rahul said while addressing a rally in Punjab’s Fatehgarh.

Rahul Gandhi’s Full Text on his Facebook Page:
I think what Sam Pitroda Ji said is completely out of line and he should apologise for it.
I think 1984 was a needless tragedy that caused tremendous pain.
I think justice has to be done. The people who were responsible for the 1984 tragedy have to be punished. The Former PM, Manmohan Singh Ji has apologised. My mother, Sonia Gandhi Ji has apologised. We all have made our position very clear – that 1984 was a terrible tragedy and should never have happened.
What Mr. Sam Pitroda has said is absolutely and completely out of line and is not appreciated. I will be communicating this to him directly. He must apologise for his comment.
