BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi raked up the massacre of Sikhs in the aftermath of the assassination of Indira Gandhi and questioned Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi whether he was angry over these killings.

The Gujarat Chief Minister said he had not come here to “shed tears,” an apparent reference to Mr. Gandhi’s emotional speech at Churu in Rajasthan, where he spoke about his angst over the assassination of his grandmother Indira Gandhi and father Rajiv Gandhi.

“I heard about the speech. I want to raise serious questions. He said he was angry when his grandmother was killed. I want to ask the ‘shahzada’ (prince) is it true that all Congressmen got angry?

“I understand your anger at the death of your grandmother, but were you angry, pained at the death of those thousands of Sikhs,” Mr. Modi said at a rally here.
