Video: Army personnel are bound to die, says BJP MP over CRPF camp attack
New Delhi : A Bharatiya Janata Party Member of Parliament issued a bizarre statement claiming that those who are recruited in the Army are bound to die.
BJP MP Nepal Singh was responding to a question over attack on CRPF camp when he said that there is no country where soldiers don't die.
"They will die in Army every day. Tell me one country where army personnel do not die," said the BJP leader.
Apparently upset over the raising of the issue of armymen being killed in terror attacks, Singh said, “Even when a scuffle breaks out in a village, someone or the other gets injured. Tell me a medicine that can save lives.”
"Tell us one thing that can make bullets ineffective, we will get that implemented," he added.
"Ye to roz marenge Army mein, koi aisa desh hai jahan army ka aadmi na marta ho jhagde mein? Gaon mein bhi jhagda hota hai to ek na ek to ghaayal hoga hi! Koi aisi device batao, jisse aadmi na mare? Aisi cheez batao ki goli kaam na kare, use karwa dein" says BJP MP Nepal Singh pic.twitter.com/Tnb0gT0VKr— ANI (@ANI) January 2, 2018
Responding to the uproar over his comments, he claimed that he did not insult any martyr. Though he also offered an apology, he maintained that he did not say anything that would insult a martyr.
"Maine ye bola tha ki vaigyanik lage hue hain aur koi device dhoondh rahe hain ki koi goli aaye to lage nahin, sipaahi ka protection ho jaaye (I had said that scientists are working on looking for a device, using which a bullet can be turned ineffective and the soldier be saved)," he said.
The attack on CRPF camp in Srinagar on Saturday had martyred four army personnel after two heavily armed terrorists had stormed inside the camp. All the terrorists were also gunned down in the battle.
