The Congress has strongly  criticised Union Minister of State for External Affairs  Gen V K Singh (retd) for his reported “insensitive’ remark comparing the demand for compensation to the families of 39 Indians killed in Iraq to demanding “biscuits”, and said it was “heartless, shameful and reprehensible”.

Congress communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala said Singh’s remark was like rubbing salt on the wounds of those dead. “39 Indians were killed in Mosul, Iraq, as Modi Government continuously misled the families and Nation. Minister, V.K. Singh is now rubbing ‘salt on the wounds’ by rubbishing the demands for compensation for the families as akin to demand for ‘biscuits’. Heartless, Shameful and Reprehensible!,’ he wrote on Twitter.

After returning with the bodies of the 39 dead in Mosul, Singh reportedly said in Amritsar that he was not “distributing biscuits”, when asked by reporters about compensation to the families of the victims.
