Hyderabad, Mar 5: Close on the heels of age row, Army Chief VK Singh on Monday, Mar 5 called the media reports on phone tapping to hear the conversation on age row as "fiction".

"Fiction does not require any reaction. If people concoct stories and some of the irresponsible editors allow those stories to get published, I don't think it requires any reaction," Singh said.

While replying on the shortage of ammunition in the Indian Army, he said that he had apprised the Defence Ministry about the status of various inventories.

"The Raksha Rajya Mantri is aware. Our efforts in the last two years have been to ensure that the operational preparedness of the Army improves. In that there are a large number of measures. Periodically, we have been apprising the ministry as to how things are going, what are the shortages and what action needs to be done," Singh added.
