New Delhi, Oct 22: Union Minister VK Singh on Thursday blamed a family feud for the burning alive of two Dalit children in Haryana and drew an analogy that if someone throws stones at a dog, the government is not responsible.

"If someone throws stones at a dog, the government is not responsible. It was a feud between two families, the matter in under inquiry," Singh told reporters. [Faridabad: 7 arrested for burning of Dalit family]

'Can't blame Govt for Dalit burning'

His comment came after two children were burnt alive while their parents were critically injured when the house of the Dalit family in Haryana's Faridabad district was set on fire on Tuesday.

"Failure of administration should not be put on government's head," he added.
