New Delhi: The BJP on Friday cast aspersions on
the government on the Army Chief controversy, saying there
seems to be something "fishy" and demanded that the Centre
should stop "harassing" Gen V K Singh and instead look into
the issues raised by him.
"There is something fishy in the manner in which this
government is giving explanations on the whole controversy. We
do not want security matters to become an issue..... But
instead of harassing Gen V K Singh, this government should
look into the issues he has raised," BJP Vice-President
Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi told reporters outside Parliament House.
The BJP has expressed concern over the leakage of the
letter written by Gen Singh to the Prime Minister.
It has also asked Defence Minister A K Antony to look
into all the issues raised by Gen Singh, including the Rs 14
crore bribe offer on which a CBI inquiry has been ordered, and
has criticised his "inaction and indecisiveness".
