New Delhi: Deprecating Union Minister V K Singh’s “dog” remarks, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today demanded his immediate removal while AAP said it will file a police complaint tomorrow seeking his arrest and also approach SC/ST Commission.
“AAP will go to police station tomorrow to file an FIR against V K Singh demanding his arrest as under the SC/ST Act, the offence is non-cognisable,” senior AAP leader Ashutosh said.
Singh kicked up a storm with his comments that the Centre cannot be blamed if somebody throws a stone at a dog to shield it from criticism for the Faridabad incident, where two children of a Dalit family were burnt alive.
The Delhi Chief Minister asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to sack the Minister of State for External Affairs immediately.
“VK Singh’s statement is shameful and prosecutable under SC/ST Act. A case should be registered against him immediately.
“Today is Dusshera which is symbolic of victory of goodness over evil and arrogance. If Modiji really wants to celebrate Dusshera then he should rid his cabinet of evil and arrogance. V K Singh should be removed from Cabinet before this evening,” Kejriwal said in a series of tweets.
The Congress has also slammed Singh and demanded his immediate sacking.
“See, the thing is, never associate local incidents with the central government (sarkar). There is an inquiry going on. There was a dispute between families. The dispute…How did it turn out…Where did the administration fail, after these it comes to the Centre.
“For everything…Like if somebody throws a stone at a dog, then the government is responsible…It is not like that,” Singh said in Ghaziabad while referring to the incident in Haryana’s Faridabad which left two toddlers dead on the intervening night of October 19-20.
