The Bhartiya Janata Party, which was planning to launch an offensive against Dr Manmohan Singh's government during a debate on the Justice G T Nanavati Commission of Inquiry report on anti-Sikh riots in Delhi in 1984 on Thursday, has said that the resignation of Jagdish Tytler from the council of ministers is a step that has come too late and it offers nothing.

Speaking to rediff.com, Vijay Kumar Malhotra of the BJP said the Congress strategy to pacify the riot victims by asking Tytler to resign, as he had been named in the Nanavati report, was not going to yield anything substantial.
"This is too little and too late," was how he described Tytler's resignation.
The party leaders would meet in the parliament house to redraft their strategy for debate in the upper house as the Congress would now talk of high moral ground and ask for Narendra Modi's resignation as Chief Minister of Gujarat for the alleged role played by his government during the Gujarat riots following the Godhra train carnage.
The Congress may also seek Advani's resignation as he has been chargesheeted in the Babri Masjid demolition case."No, this will have no impact on our earlier strategy," Malhotra claimed.
