Breaking his silence,Army Chief General V K Singh today said unnecessary attempts were being made to ”throw muck” at the government and the Army.
“This is absolutely stupid,” he told PTI when asked to comment on the ‘The Indian Express’ report yesterday that said the government was “spooked” on the night of January 16-17 because of the movement of a mechanised infantry battalion from Haryana’s Hisar and a sizeable section of 50 Para Brigade.
“Whosoever is trying to make stories against the Army chief is deplorable. And what it shows is that people are unnecessarily trying to throw muck at both the government and the Army and such people should be taken to task,” he said.
The Army Chief is in Nepal to attend a three-day regional seminar on Natural Disaster Management and Humanitarian Assistance.
