New Delhi: Congress on Monday downplayed Army
Chief Gen VK Singh`s action to move the Supreme Court against
the government rejecting his claim on his date of birth.

"It is a matter between the person who has gone to the
court and the court," party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi told
reporters who sought his reaction to the unprecedented
development.

In his writ petition, Gen Singh is believed to have
questioned the government`s decision to treat his date of
birth as May 10,1950 instead of May 10,1951 as claimed by him
on the basis of his matriculation certificate and other
documents.
