AAP seeks V K Singh’s ouster
Deprecating Union minister VK Singh’s “dog” remarks, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday 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 (Friday) 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. “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.
