New Delhi, April 9: After his controversial 'Prestitute' tweet, Union Minister VK Singh once again may land in a new controversy.
Now, the minister, the former chief of Indian Army, wrote a letter asking for a media regulator body. In his letter, Singh criticised a few media persons and the then UPA government. [#presstitutes: US lauded the General, time we did too]
Singh wrote, "Since 2012, I have been repeatedly attacked by certain 'media workers' who have published stories that were not only cooked up, but also did enormous harm to the institution that I was heading, the Indian Army."
He also claimed, "When I fought back and defended myself, the institutions these individuals represented, simply hardened their stand and continued to unleash more and more vitriol in the hope of harming my reputation."
Earlier Singh faced tremendous criticism following his 'Prestitute' tweet aiming at media.
Singh who is in Djibouti to oversee evacuation of Indians from Yemen during a press conference had said that the evacuation operation is less exciting than going to the Pakistani embassy.
And when social media started commenting about the remark, the former Army chief tweeted, "Friends what do you expect from presstitutes." Adding that last time the TV anchor thought there was 'O' in place of 'E'.
