‘Army chief targeted for not toeing govt line’

Team Anna extended full support to Army Chief VK Singh, alleging that he was targeted for not "toeing" the government line on issues.



New Delhi: Team Anna on Thursday extended full
support to Army Chief V K Singh, alleging that he was
targeted for not "toeing" the government line on issues.

Activist Arvind Kejriwal alleged government has killed
almost every institution by "planting its loyalists".

"Those who refuse to toe govt line, like army chief and
CAG, are targeted. We fully support army chief`s struggle. We
are proud of him," Kejriwal wrote on micro-blogging site
`Twitter`.

He said government appeared to be at war with the armed
forces and the people of India.

Referring to the remarks against the army chief, he said,
"Politicians, rather than discussing precarious security
preparedness of India, are playing politics."

Another Team Anna member Kiran Bedi said it appeared that
the Army Chief was surrounded by "senior officials with
doubtful integrity".

"Had evidence but did not know how to fix it? Now he has!
Laws of nature work when nothing else does. Trust in nature.
Those riding on corruption and abuse of power will see their
end sooner than later," she tweeted.

The comments came following Singh`s remarks about him
being offered a Rs 14 crore bribe by a lobbyist to clear the
sale of a tranche of 600 `substandard` Tatra trucks for the

Army and his letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh giving a
grim picture of the country`s military preparedness.
