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.
“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.
