New Delhi: Congress on Monday virtually questioned the continuance of former Army chief Gen V K Singh as Union minister in the wake of the Armed Forces Tribunal making some carping comments against him in the Sukna land scam case.
"How many times a minister has been found guilty of conspiracy?... There have been huge question marks. The Prime Minister should ask questions and the nation should know," party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi told reporters.
He was asked whether it was a "fit case" for dismissal of Singh as Union minister in view of the Army tribunal's virtual indictment of his actions as Army Chief in the court martial of former 33 Corps Commander Lt Gen P K Rath, who was given a clean chit by tribunal in the Sukna land scam.
"For a sitting minister of the central government to be so indicted by a high power tribunal,... Which has passed strictures against him and has found him part of the conspiracy... It is extraordinary that he is continuing," Singhvi said.
