A day after questioning the “mental state” of ex-serviceman Ram Kishan Grewal, who allegedly committed suicide in protest against the “non-implementation” of One Rank One Pension (OROP) scheme, Union Minister Vijay Kumar Singh claimed that he was a Congress worker who became Sarpanch after contesting on the party ticket. “He was a Congress worker who fought the Sarpanch election on party ticket. His suicide is unfortunate,” V K Singh said.

The Minister of State for External Affairs raised questions over how Grewal was able to procure Sulfas tablets and claimed that his issue was with the bank and not with OROP. “His issue was with the bank and not with OROP. Also, how did he procure Sulpha tablets and who gave it to him?” said Singh. If Grewal had reached out to us and didn’t get help, then it was our fault, Singh added.

Earlier on Thursday, Defence Minsiter Manohar Parrikar told reporters that one lakh defence personnel are yet to get full benefit of OROP. On Wednesday, Singh questioned the “mental state” of Grewal. “He has committed suicide. No one knows the reason behind it. OROP is being shown as the reason. What his mental state was we do not know. Let it be probed first. OROP should be kept above politics,” Singh told reporters.

    A man in his full senses commits suicide when he sees no hope ( Subedar Grewal didn't see hope even in VKSingh),V K Singh was in his full senses when he joined BJP and also when he approached the Supreme Court for rectification,h e was in full senses when he said " pressutes".So retired army general V K Singh have some respect for the army's uniform,b because Subedar Grewal had also worn the same uniform as yours,dont lose you mental balance and stoop so low that your colleagues in the Army may not even like to look at you.What was wrong for the Subedar Grewal to have won election as a Congress candidate? What are your insinuations?Have lost your mental balance? that you don't think before you open your mouth!!

          V K Singh is a true brahmin. He does have A LOT OF INCONSIDERATION FOR EVERY HUMAN. That brahmin DOG did the same by calling "NOT EACH AND EVERY STREET DOG CAN BE PROTECTED BY GoI" referring to DALIT BURNING.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;DESTROY ALL BRAHMIN DOGS

                      Only false propoa fanned by media houses is working as the facts in this case are otherwise.The person concerned was getting pension and his enhanced money could not be paid by bank concerned due to technical or other reason.How the facts are being twisted by the cheap and immature leaders to get some publicity.Their shameful conduct exhibited by them are also in pubic considerations who is aware of their zero concern for people's welfare.Only nautanki by jokers will not help. His being a Cong. Supporter their concern is for votes by way of ranting on his suicide.

                        In India there 3 lakh people per year commit suicide with various reasons. With some OROP issue some one commit suicide is one of the 3 lakh. So no need for politicizing. Even one of AAP member commit suicide by hanging on a tree, just in front of kejri while he was speaking. No one tried to stop him. These are called indirect murder for political gains of some parties, which are evil minded. Who cares? Only family members lose their beloved ones. Now it's the quest where ram kishan get that sulfas tablets from. It seems to me that some congress or AAP leaders arranged for him. So death is necessary for the existance of these evil parties. It is high time for every citizens to take note on it and exhort you not to fall in their trap, because life is precious.

                          A suicider for personal GRIVANCES is not at all a martyr. Let Rahul and KEJARIVAL shed tears. We do not want to make India a weak country and a herd of wicked politicians who inspire to people for suicide by honoring such suicides.

                              Modi has money to offer loan 80000 crores to Adani, Ambani and Gujju Corp. He does not have money for soldiers who die to protect the country.

                                            Minister VK Singh has also said suicide is unfortunate.Reason behind suicide have to be seen. Opposition is just politicizing the issue. They are just trying to survive till next elections as if their fortunes will change dramatically after that. People have seen the true faces of entire opposition in last 2 and a half years.
