Operation Bluestar: BJP exposes ‘botched-up’ execution and political motivations 2023

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has stated, on the occasion of the 39th anniversary of Operation Bluestar, that the bungled execution of the operation cannot be disguised, nor can the long-lasting impact it has had on the Sikh community be erased.

“NeverForget1984” Cover-ups will never be able to hide the fact that Operation Blue Star was a complete failure, leaving an indelible mark on the psyche of Sikhs.

On the day of the martyrdom of Guru Arjan Dev Ji, which occurred on June 5, 1984, the Army entered the Golden Temple on the instructions of the late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

The spokesman for the BJP, RP Singh, expressed his opinions on Twitter using the hashtag

At the time, the temple was filled with people. Everything had been planned out well in advance and carried out with the elections in 1985 in mind.

The Sikhs, who were the most nationalist community, were portrayed as anti-nationalist in order for the Congress to win the majority of votes, and they were successful in doing so.

RP Singh further said that the late Lieutenant General SK Sinha, who had been charged by Indira Gandhi to prepare the attack against the Golden Temple, had doubts about the idea and refused it. Indira Gandhi had given Sinha the responsibility of planning the attack.

“This decision cost Lt. Gen. Sinha the position of the Chief of Army,” stated Singh. “This decision cost Lt. Gen. Sinha the position.”
