"I will apologize because it happened in our time. I would apologize a thousand times for what happened to the whole Sikh community. I would say whatever happened was shameful," a TV news channel quoted him as, saying.
On Thursday, Apr 9, a troubled Congress cancelled the names of leaders Tytler and Sajjan Kumar from the electoral fray as the ghost of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots returned to haunt the party.
Tytler, who was the Congress candidate in North East Delhi, now holds the then government responsible for the 1984's blood-shed.
"I would say the people, the administration and the governor, who should have controlled (the situation), did not control at that time," Tytler said.
