B’cracy tried to cook up something: VK Singh on troop

Amidst a fresh controversy over movement of Army units towards Delhi in 2012, former Army Chief Gen V K Singh on Monday said the bureaucracy had tried to “cook up” something even though it was a routine exercise.

To buttress his point, he cited a statement given by former DGMO Lt Gen A K Choudhary who had been called by the then Defence Secretary to explain the troop movement. “DGMO has clearly said that it was a routine exercise...he was called at night, why was he called and for what reason...on the other hand our political leadership has made it clear that nothing was wrong.

“So, it means something was being cooked up within the bureaucracy. I have already said it is a fable of sick mind,” Singh told reporters here.
