V K Singh, the Union minister of State for Foreign Affairs has invited a lot of criticism by making a controversial statement on the attack on African nationals. He said that it was a ‘minor scuffle’ which is being ‘blown up’ as attack on African nationals, by the media.

“Had detailed discussion with Delhi Police and found that media blowing up minor scuffle as attack on African nationals in Rajpur Khurd,” Singh tweeted.

 

 

He slammed the media in his series of tweets.

 

Broadcast Editors’ Association (BEA) has condemned the controversial statement of V K Singh. “He is in the habit of making this kind of absurd statements which are not in consonance with the spirit of democracy,” its general secretary NK Singh said.

He also reminded VK Singh that it is not a military regime where media dance for the power packs. “We would advise the Prime Minister to give lessons in Indian Constitution to the Minister,” NK Singh added.

Meanwhile, the government has decided to transport back home the mortal remains of Congolese national Masunda Kitanda Oliver, who was beaten to death on May 20.

The incident had triggered anger among the African countries, with the African envoys threatening to boycott the Africa Day celebrations of the Indian government last week.
