Union Minister VK Singh has trivialised the Faridabad Dalit killings incident saying the government can’t be blamed for the Dalit children’s death.
“If someone throws stones at a dog, the government is not responsible. It was a feud between two families; the matter is under inquiry,” Singh told reporters.
His comment came after two children were burnt alive while their parents were critically injured when the house of the Dalit family in Haryana’s Faridabad district was set on fire on Tuesday.
“Failure of administration should not be put on government’s head,” he added.
The opposition has slammed the Union Minister over the “irresponsible” comment saying that he’s made a mockery of the victims and their fight for justice.
