I’ve been a loyal Congress worker, asserts TytlerApril 9th, 2009 - 10:18 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, April 9 (IANS) Dropped as the party candidate for the Lok Sabha poll from Delhi, Congress leader Jagdish Tytler said Thursday he was a loyal party worker and would campaign for the party if asked to.
He also said that the protests against his candidature for the Delhi Northeast constituency were politically motivated.
“I have been a loyal worker of the party,” Tytler said, minutes after the party high command announced they were dropping him and Sajjan Kumar as candidates in the wake of widespread protests over their alleged involvement in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
Tytler said the Congress party would decide his role in the party, adding that he would campaign for any party candidate if asked to.
