New Delhi, Oct 10: Both Congress and opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had opposed Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee's decision to honour the families of the assassins of General Arun Vaidya, who was the Army Chief at the time of Operation Blue Star.

Even SGPC has hailed the two killers of General Vaidya as martyrs.

The SGPC is proposing to honour the families of the assassins at a time when there are concerns about the radical pro-Khalistan forces regrouping in Punjab. SGPC member Bhagwant Singh Sialka said, "Ever since they were hanged, we have always been marking this day by honouring them at the Akal Takht."

Sources say the state government is clearly turning its back to the blatant facts preferring to extend its tacit support to these hardline factions instead.
