VK Singh lashes out at Rahul Gandhi on Twitter, rakes up 57-day vacation issue

New Delhi: Union Minister of State for External Affairs VK Singh on Wednesday lashed out at Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi for questioning his absence from Parliament.

"Intriguing that Rahul Gandhi questions my absence from the parliament, wonder how someone who vanished for 57 days earlier this year and has one of the poorest track records when it comes to attending the parliament (43% in 2013), does so with a straight face (sic)," VK Singh wrote on Twitter.

"He deserves no justification from me about my #commitment, #love and #respect for this great nation. He talks about my intention to participate in divisive politics, but forgets that I served the army of our great nation for 42 years (sic),"  VK Singh added through tweets.

"He forgets that my men & I put our lives on the line to protect this very socio-economic & cultural fabric of our nation (sic)."

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday had sought VK Singh's removal from the ministry for comparing Dalit children with dogs.

He accused Singh of challenging the constitution with his remarks on the incident involving the killing of two Dalit children in Haryana.

VK Singh Singh triggered a huge row in October when he citing the example of a dog's stoning while commenting on the burning of two Dalit children in a Haryana village. He later said he had been misunderstood.
