BJP Member of Parliament (MP) Nepal Singh today made the controversial statement that soldiers in the army die every day and there was no country in the world where an army man did not die fighting.
The BJP lawmaker from Rampur, Uttar Pradesh was asked about the December 31 encounter with heavily armed terrorists in Kashmir's Pulwama district that claimed the lives of five soldiers of the Central Reserve Police Force.
"They will die in the army every day. Is there any country where an army man does not die in fighting. In a village also if there is a fight then one person or the other is injured. Tell a device which can ensure men don't die. Tell something that bullet cannot work, but can get the work done," said the BJP lawmaker from Rampur, Uttar Pradesh.
"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
