Mulayam ready to apologise for Rampur Tiraha massacre  White Paper will be released soon: RP Singh Seema Sharma

Dehradun September 26
National chief of the Samajwadi Party Mulayam Singh Yadav is ready to apologise to the people of Uttarakhand for the atrocities on the public at Rampur Tiraha massacre in 1998 in Muzaffarnagar.
Talking to The Tribune, member of the National Working Committee of the party RP Singh said Yadav had given his consent to apologise to the people of the state for the Muzaffarnagar episode to close this chapter once and for all.
Admitting that this incident had blacklisted the party among the people, he said Mulayam Singh Yadav wanted to break the jinx of the party's successive defeats in the electoral battle just due to this reason, which had been exploited by other parties.
RP Singh said the party was consolidating its base. He would seek public apology at a rally, he said.
He also stated that the party was also preparing a white paper in this regard which would be released in the next 10 days.
The purpose was to clear the misconceptions among the public.
He said, "If Capt Amarinder Singh could become the Chief Minister of Punjab after a few years of the 1984 communal riots, the Samajwadi Party has not committed a crime of that stature. Politicians like Ram Singh Saini and Ambrish Kumar had left us.
Then DM Anant Kumar was promoted, so was DIG Bua Singh who was elevated to the position of DGP by BSP chief Mayawati. If those who were clearly involved were not punished, then the SP should not be punished just because it was in power in the state.
It was BC Khanduri, former Chief Minister of the state, who wrote to the Centre to stop the procession of the agitators."
He said it was for the first time they wanted to bring facts before people of the state on this emotional issue.
