    Pretender Raj Nath Singh. Typical Political double speak. Mr. Raj Nath Singh, why are the terrorists of 1984 Genocide roaming free? Why has your government not taken any actions against them in almost four years? Why did Bajpai government did not take any action against these domestic terrorists in five years? Your party has been in power for almost nine long years and you have not taken any action against these Hindu Terrorists. Whey you speak of terrorists, it seems it is a code word for Muslims, Sikhs, Chritians, Aadi Vassis, the frontier states and Dalits. Your terrorist that the Hindu Terrorists are not subject to any action against them. As matter of fact you protect them. As a matter of fact your government facilitated the release of Hindu Terrorists like Col. Prohit.
