Reacting to the recent comments by General V K Singh as well as Minister of State for Home, Kiren Rijiju, Home Minster Rajnath Singh on Friday, sent a stern message to all the party members rebuking them for making controversial statements.

 

"Ministers must be careful while making statements. We cannot get away by saying that the statement was misinterpreted or twisted. I feel that as leaders of the ruling party, we must all be extra cautious," said Rajnath Singh.

 

“We should also ensure that there is no possibility of our statements to be interpreted in the wrong way or send an incorrect message,” he added.

 

Commenting on the recent incident where two Dalit children were burnt to death by high caste Rajputs, the Minister of State for External Affairs and a former army chief, General VK Singh had said yesterday: "If someone throws stones at a dog, the government is not responsible."

 

It was highly insensitive when V K Singh compared the killing of the innocent children to stones thrown at a dog. His comment soon generated controversy.

 

Moreover some members of opposition referred to Singh’s comment as racist and demanded his resignation.

 

Also, Minister of State for Home, Kiren Rijiju exacerbated the controversy as he expressed his agreement with a former lieutenant governor of Delhi who once remarked north Indians “take pride in and enjoy” breaking rules.

 

This was the second instance the BJP reprimanded its members for issuing controversial statements. Last week, Amit Shah had admonished four senior leaders – including Union ministers Sanjeev Balyan, Mahesh Sharma and Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar – for making provocative statements on the Dadri lynching incident.

 

Although V K Singh clarified that his statement was misunderstood, the AAP in Delhi acted promptly in registering a police complaint while the Scheduled Caste Commission.
