BJP Lok Sabha candidate and former Army Chief Gen VK Singh today slammed Defence Ministry`s decision to go ahead with the process of appointing the next Army Chief, saying it is "ethically" wrong and would make the present chief "ineffective".
Seven years before the issue rocked the country, the Defence Ministry had gone into the procurement of Tatra trucks through an intermediary company and not original manufacturers and had closed the matter.
Gen Singh said he had tackled the issue in
"organisational interest" but remained evasive on whether he
would accept the government`s decision according to which he
will have to retire on May 31 this year.
