Amitabh Bachchan and Congress

Congress has criticised Amitabh Bachchan for being brand ambassador of Gujarat because of Narendra Modi’s role in 2002 Gujarat riots.
Congress has to examine its track record. People involved in 1984 anti-Sikh riots continue to be Congress members. Congress has not done anything to bring the guilty to justice. Sajjan Kumar and Jagdish Tytler continue to be Congress members. HKL Bhagat remained a Congress member till his death. When a big tree falls the earth shakes was a statement made by Rajiv Gandhi. At that time Amitabh Bachchan was a friend of Rajiv Gandhi.
Many riots have taken place in Congress ruled states. The guilty remain unpunished.
If Congress is serious about its opposition to riots it should expel Sajjan Kumar and Jagdish Tytler.
When Amitabh Bachchan faced problems from MNS the law did not take its course in Maharashtra which had a Congress chief minister.
Ashok Chavan faced criticism from some Congress members for sharing the dais with Amitabh Bachchan at the inauguration of second Bandra-Worli Sea Link. After that Congress members avoided Amitabh Bachchan at Marathi literary festival, Poona. Narendra Modi called Congress members talibans of untouchability.
There were riots in Gujarat in 1969, 1981 and 1985 and Congress was in power at that time.
NCP has no problem with Amitabh Bachchan. BJP sided with Amitabh Bachchan and a member even said Amitabh Bachchan should be made brand ambassador for Commonwealth Games.
When Amitabh Bachchan agreed to become brand ambassador for Gujarat it came as a surprise. At that time he was associated with Amar Singh and Samajwadi Party. Later Amar Singh was expelled from Samajwadi Party. Jaya Bachchan continues in Samajwadi Party.
The Chief Justice of India K. G. Balakrishnan shared the dais with Narendra Modi on 28/3/2010. Will Congress criticise him?
