After courting controversy with his reaction over the killings of two Dalith children in Ballabhgarh, now, Minister of State in the Union Government VK singh said that journalists, who are protesting against the rising intolerance, need to be treated in a mental asylum. He also used the term ‘prostitutes’ for describing journalists.
The controversial leader came under massive media attack after he said that the government can’t be held responsible for two Dalit children being burnt alive by upper caste people in Faridabad on Wednesday. Adding that “If someone throws stones at dogs, then how government is responsible for this.”
His inhuman comments have drawn major flak across the nation and the Congress has now demanded his resignation and a case has been slapped against him under Prevention of Atrocities on Scheduled Caste Act Section 3 and 4.
However the minister took a U turn saying he didn’t mean to create an analogy between the Dalit community and dogs. He also tried using the patriotism card and said that he had served the Indian army for the people of the whole nation irrespective of their race and religion.
