"Welcome the first conviction by a Delhi court in the 1984 riots case. Justice has finally been meted out to the perpetrators of the heinous crimes. Hope the others involved in the attacks are also soon brought to book for their horrendous and inhuman acts," his tweet read.

The portfolio, which was previously held by OP Soni, has been allocated to Singh as Soni has now been handed over the Food Processing department.
