According to reports, a massive online campaign is going on against Kamal Nath. Left and right wing voices speak up against the senior Congress leader.
"When Rahul Gandhi appointed 1984 Sikh Massacre. Kamal Nath as in-charge of Punjab assembly election, @capt_amarinder protested till his removal. If RaGa still appoint Sikh Murderer Kamal Nath as CM, Captain sahab should protest & Resign from Congress," Delhi BJP spokesman Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga tweeted.

He resigned as Akali Dal, BJP and AAP had kept up attack on him and the Congress over his alleged role in the anti-Sikh riots which followed the assassination of Indira Gandhi.
