Cong won't protect Tytler, says Moily

Petroleum Minister M Veerappa Moily on Friday said the Congress will not shield its senior leader Jagdish Tytler, accused in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, but said the allegation against him is not as serious as those against Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

He told reporters: “Our heart goes out to the victims. We are not here to protect anybody. The law will take its own course.” Moily said the Congress leadership had owned up moral responsibility for the riots as far back as in 1985-86.

Stating that the allegation against Tytler was not as serious as against Modi, he said the Gujarat chief minister has not taken a single step to come clean on the 2002 riots in Gujarat.
