Speaking to India Today, Galwan hero late Naik Deepak Singh's brother said that everyone, "especially Richa Chadha", should be aware that a soldier's first love is the country.
By India Today Web Desk: Actor Richa Chadha's three-word tweet about Galwan clashes has triggered a controversy. Now, the brother of Naik Deepak Singh, the armyman who was killed in action during the Galwan clashes, denounced Richa Chadha's comment.
Speaking to India Today TV, Naik Deepak Singh's brother Prakash admitted that everyone, "especially Richa Chadha", should be aware that a soldier's first love is the country.
" I am not very fond of watching movies, moreover, I am listening to the name Richa Chadha for the first time today," Prakash said.
Richa Chadha has been facing flak over her tweet where she replied to Indian Army's Northern Army Commander Lt General Upendra Dwivedi's statement that the Indian Army is ready to execute orders like taking back Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).
"Galwan says hi," the actor tweeted, sharing the army general's post.
"Richa Chadha's comment, as an Indian... and on the soldiers, the Indian Army jawans who sacrifice their lives and put themselves at risk. Firstly, I would like to ask her that today she uttered 'Galwan' but has she remembered the martyrs or soldiers who are no more in these two years span?" he said.
"Did she try to take stock of the families of the martyrs?" Singh said.
'RICHA CHADHA'S COMMENTS, PUBLICITY STUNT'
Prakash Singh said he was proud of his late brother. "I am myself part of the Indian armed forces, I am Naik Deepak Singh's brother and I am filled with immense pride whenever I think about this or take his name," Prakash Singh told India Today.
"Secondly, what Richa Chadha said was a publicity stunt," Prakash Singh added.
He further said that the actor not only "disrespected" the Indian Army but also gave a chance to the other country (China) to raise questions.
Prakash Singh mentioned his late brother Deepak Singh died while saving the lives of others during the India-China skirmishes in eastern Ladakh region on May 15, 2020.
