Jagdish Tytler

Jagdish Tytler is a Congress politician and a former Member of Parliament. He also served as the Indian Union Minister of State for Overseas Indian Affairs.

Tytler is the current AICC in-charge for Odisha.

Jagdish Tyler has been involved in several controversies. He was accused of inciting and leading murderous mobs against the Sikh community in Delhi during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. Tytler has refused the allegations. He also had to resign from his minister position after an official commission of inquiry noted the 'balance of probability'.

In September 2012, Jagdish Tytler was booked for criminal conspiracy for allegedly instigating Congress party workers in the Odisha Assembly protests. A woman constable was beaten up by the mobs in the incident.
