Minister of state for external affairs Gen (Retd) V K Singh’s controversial statement, in which he used the term ‘Presstitutes’ to refer to the media, is being condemned not just by opposition but also by his party members.

On Tuesday making a caustic remark on the media, Singh posted on twitter, “Friends what do you expect from presstitutes. Last time Arnab thought there was ‘O’ in place of ‘E’”.

Minister of state for parliamentary affairs and MoS for minority affairs, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi while talking to Governance Now said, “Party is never with those who make such statements”.

He added, “One should refrain from making such statements. This kind of statement is wrong and we can never justify this.”
Singh is known for making controversial statements. He has also made an unpleasant statement regarding Operation Rahat. He said he did not find saving 4000 Indian lives exciting. He said, given a choice he would prefer to be in the Pakistan embassy. He had said, “Dekha jaye to ye kaam utna exciting nahin lag raha jitna mera Pak embassy mein jaane ka tha (this work (Operation Rahat) is not as exciting as his attending the event in Pak embassy in Delhi).”
