When reporters saw Tytler leaving the stage, then they questioned him whether he was asked to leave as one of the mottos of the programme was communal harmony.
Tytler replied: “No! No! Ajay (Maken) is calling me.”
After that, Maken was seen escorting Tytler to few yards and coming back when Tytler left.
Later talking to ANI, Tytler, who then sat with the Congress workers, said nobody had asked him to leave the stage.
When asked what Ajay Maken told him, Tytler replied, “I asked him when will Rahul ji come.’
Responding to another question, Tytler said perception about him will be corrected when the time comes.
When asked about the Sikh community’s sentiment being hurt by Tytler, the 1984 Sikh riot accused Congress leader said, “If you come to my constituency and I will take you to every gurudwara, not a single Sikh… Only Akalis will speak against me as abusing me is their bread and butter.”
The Congress party organised a nationwide “fast” to protest against the Narendra Modi government and non-functioning of the Parliament.
Meanwhile, Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal slammed the Congress over the presence of both the accused.
There is no use finding fault with the EVMs now when the party leadership committed a historic blunder with regard to the overall strategy in the elections. First, it should look within to find out reasons that stopped AAP’s march to power,” Chandigarh-based The Tribune quoted Mann as saying.
