Even as three jawans lost their lives in Chhattisgarh's Narayanpur, Congress has politicised the matter. Speaking at the Lok Sabha on Thursday, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury has asked as to why is there a tussle among the paramilitary forces. He said that the government is unable to provide a healthy environment for the jawans. He also said that the jawans might be going through psychological tensions that may have led to such a situation. 

He said: "I want to speak about the incident that took place in Chhattisgarh, paramilitary forces are quarrelling among themselves, that means there is a problem among them. They might be facing a psychological issue, or the government is unable to provide them with a healthy environment. Such cases do not take place in navy or army but why paramilitary?"
