If Rahul Gandhi has accepted that some Congress leaders were involved in anti-Sikh riots then why didn't party take any action against them, asked Tripathi. "There is no doubt that administrative experience of Narendra Modi is more than Rahul Gandhi because he is three-time CM", said Tripathi. Rahul, in an interview in Times Now, had admitted that some Congress men were involved in the 1984 Sikh riots which followed the assassination of former prime minister Indira Gandhi by her Sikh bodyguards.
About the allegations of a pre-poll alliance with BJP, Tripathi said, "We don't believe in post-poll alliance, we believe in pre-poll alliance and we are in touch with other political parties". On Friday, a Marathi newspaper had carried reports that NCP chief Sharad Pawar on January 17 met BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi in Delhi. However, Sharad Pawar denied of any pre-poll alliances with BJP.
NCP wants to bring all democratic forces in one platform, Tripathi said.
