Shameful: Union Minister Clicks Selfie With Slain Pulwama Jawan’s Coffin 

The minister's act was criticised on social media. 

Union Minister Alphons Kannanthanam clicked a selfie in front of the coffin of CRPF jawan Vasanthakumar, who was killed in the February 14 Pulwama attack and posted the picture on social media.

The Minister of State for Tourism posted the picture on his Facebook page on Saturday with the caption: “The funeral of jawan V.V. Vasanthakumar was held at the soldier’s home and it is because of soldiers like him that citizens of the country can live peacefully.” The minister reportedly took down the post later after facing criticism.

On Kannanthanam’s Facebook page the same picture was uploaded on Sunday without any caption along with a few other images. The minister was again slammed by social media users for seeking publicity.
