Can't blame government for Dalit children's death: V.K. Singh - Sakshi Post

New Delhi: Union Minister V.K. Singh on Thursday blamed a family feud for the burning alive of two Dalit children in Haryana and drew an analogy that if someone throws stones at a dog, the government is not responsible.

But as the comment stirred up a controversy, the minister came out with a clarification and said he did not intend to draw a comparison.
"If someone throws stones at a dog, the government is not responsible. It was a feud between two families, the matter in 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.
