Kochi: A military coup is not even a distant possibility in India, Defence Minister A.K. Antony said here Sunday.

Antony said this while interacting with the media after giving away awards for Indian Coast Guard personnel.
"A military coup in our country is not even a remote possibility and there is no reason to fear about it," Antony said responding to a question on the statement of a former director general of military operations that the army in 2012 advanced towards the capital.
Antony also said that the defence forces acted responsibly and functioned on the directives of a democratically-elected government.
