As a controversy raged over the suicide of an ex-serviceman, Union Minister V K Singh on Friday attacked Congress and AAP, alleging that they were “doing politics over dead bodies”.

Singh alleged that the two parties were left with no issues and knew nothing about the ‘one rank, one pension’ matter.

“They have nothing else (no issue) to do politics on. That is why they do politics over dead bodies. Go and ask them whether they have attended funeral of any other soldier.”

“So many soldiers have been martyred, did Aam Aadmi Party leaders and Congress leaders went to pay homage to them. They are talking senseless,” the Minister of State for External Affairs told reporters on the sidelines of an energy efficiency conference.

Asked about criticism from other parties on his remarks, Singh said, “There is no point discussing with those who don’t know anything about it (one rank one pension).” Earlier on Wednesday, Singh had raised questions about the “mental state” of Ram Kishan Grewal, an army veteran whose suicide, allegedly over OROP, had sparked a political row.

He had also rejected reports about Grewal being a prominent face of the ‘One Rank-One Pension‘ agitation.

“He (Grewal) was a Congress worker. He became sarpanch on Congress’ ticket. However, he was our soldier. I feel sad over his death,” Singh had said on Thursday.
