New Delhi: A day after former Union Minister Manish Tewari's sensational revelation that news report about Army troops' movement in 2012 was true, former Army chief and a Union minister now, VK Singh on Sunday slammed Tewari for his remark.
Singh, the Minister of State of External Affairs at present, said that Tewari should read his book if he has some doubts about the incident.
"Manish Tewari ji has nothing to do these days. There is this book of mine, ask him to read it and every thing will be clear to him," said VK Singh.
Tewari, during a book launch event in New Delhi on Saturday, confirmed that the reports about troops' movement from Hisar towards Delhi in 2012 were true.
