Gen V K Singh versus Government: Sanctity of IB in danger
While top officials have ordered a probe into the claims of the army chief, internal reports suggest that he had a secret unit set up to sponsor a Jammu and Kashmir minister to destabilise the Omar Abdullah government.
In a tweet last night, V K Singh denied any such allegations and dug at the Intelligence Bureau instead saying, "if someone were to ask for details of resources made available by IB then very many will run for cover. So less we say the better."
Further justifying his comments, he said, "When a state is in bad shape then all resources are used to stabilize it so what more revelations do we want??" He had reiterated the same statement in a television interview when he explained that paying the ministers was nothing new in Jammu and Kashmir and it was meant to get people together there.
Expressing his concern over the revelations, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, said that this could have grave consequences on the peace initiatives in the Kasmir Valley. He said, "His accusations have made our jobs more difficult and have dealt a blow to the credibility of the people working in my government and political parties."
Top officials in the government are in a wait and watch mode till the investigation reports are out, but are sure that either ways the sanctity of the Indian administration is at stake.
