The Indian politician's ability to make insensitive comments seems to be only growing by the day. This past week it was the turn of Gen.V.K.Singh, BJP MP from Ghaziabad and Union Minister of State for External Affairs. Gen. Singh, no stranger to controversy, while responding to the murder of two Dalit children in Haryana stated
that the government could not be held responsible every time 'someone threw a stone at a dog'. Singh's remarks kicked up a political storm
with the opposition demanding
his head. More crucially, parties in poll bound Bihar
are looking to leverage them against the BJP. The fact that the remarks were potentially damaging politically was confirmed when Singh received a public rebuke
from Home Minister Rajnath Singh on the matter.
