VK Singh drew a comparison between terrorists killed in strike and 'mosquitoes' in a room.
New Delhi: Union Minister VK Singh on Wednesday said those raising questions on the Balakot strike "should be tied to the aircraft and taken along the next time", doubling down after a tweet in which he used a "mosquito-killing" metaphor to target opposition parties.
"Next time when India does something like that, I feel that those who raise questions should be tied under the aircraft and taken along. When the bombs are dropped, they can see the targets and after that they can get off, count the casualties and come back," said VK Singh.
“There were too many mosquitoes at 3.30 in the night. So, I used HIT (a mosquito repellent brand). Now should I count how many mosquitoes were killed or sleep peacefully,” VK Singh wrote on Twitter in Hindi.
रात ३.३० बजे मच्छर बहुत थे,— Vijay Kumar Singh (@Gen_VKSingh) March 6, 2019
तो मैंने HIT मारा।
अब मच्छर कितने मारे, ये गिनने बैठूँ,
या आराम से सो जाऊँ? #GenerallySaying
Explaining his tweet, VK Singh said, "Do you count things? Bombs were exploded, buildings were hit and will people not be killed after an explosion of a 1000-kg bomb? If killed, then you make an estimate of number of people killed. I don't know who wants to count it. It's unfortunate."
This comes when the opposition has been attacking the government citing BJP leaders claimed about the number of terrorists killed in the IAF strike. The opposition claims that not much damage was made to the terror camp in Balakot.
