A day after the Pulwama encounter ended in which five CRPF personnel were killed and three injured, BJP MP Nepal Singh sparked controversy after he said that there is no country where armed personnel don’t get killed in a fight and that this is a daily affair.
“They die every day in the Army. Is there a country in which Army personnel don’t get killed in a fight?” he told ANI.
“When there is a scuffle in a village, someone is bound to get injured. Tell me one device that can help in saving lives. Say any such device that can make the bullets ineffective and we will get that implemented,” he said in reply to a question on the recent attacks on security forces.
The Rampur MP, however, later issued a clarification saying that he did not intend to insult the jawans.
