The insensitivity went to the extent of comparing them with the American soldiers. "India is a land of mourners", he said and adding to the sarcasm, added,"After every soldier dies in the war front, families demand compensation from the government. Why so? Afterall, it is the duty of the soldiers to lay down their lives in the war front. Have you ever seen American families mourning for their martyrs on television and asking for compensations?"
The sarcasm went to the extent of dishonour when he said "Servicemen have a contract for 12 years and after that they are being given a pension and various other allowances. This is against their pledge to laid down their lives in the war front."
Till now no action has been taken against the DM for his sharp jibes at he martyrs.
