    Gen. V.K. Singh is probably right on this issue. The arms lobby has a considerable influence here.

    Why cry if you can't stand by your attack?

    Involving PM is just a way to save job. All these careless mouths are on the edge, another controversy & they will be replaced.

    Who 'attacked' who is debatable.

    And if indeed arms lobby is involved then informing the Prime Minster is the correct step.

    Think again - VK Singh is one of the better ministers Modi has, and he has massive public support now, and the backing of millions. Just not possible to replace him anytime in the near future.

    As far as "attack" is concerned, let me tell you that it was the media which attacked VK Singh, and not the other way round.

    Portfolio given to him translates his importance, a token for loyalty. And when Advanis of the world are thrown around easily, VKS is nothing. Ministers are appointed by PMO/Party council, not people from Gaziabad. These running mouths give bad PR. Expect another shuffle before next session if these people don't fall in line.

    He should open that bag of worms if he is so sure about arms lobby. Pointing fingers in dark is easy. He has been crying victim for long time since his birth date issue.

    As if PM needs information from him. PMO has whole intelligence machinery working overtime to keep tap on vested interests.

    VKS is just trying to save skin, after making cheap reckless comments degrading himself further.

    I don't need to investigate "Arms lobby" stuff - it may be true, or may not be. What I do know, and what I can see, is that the media, especially Arnab Goswami, have attacked him needlessly, without provocation.

    Media will do all jack tricks. He fell for it and that too badly.

    Why he does not start taking names of those from arms company who are furiously engaged in attacking an ordinary MoS ? All he has done is 'accuse' other army people, making his bunch look bad in public.

    Looks like they won't be replaced after all.

    I believe he publicly named Lt. Gen. (retd.) Tajinder Singh as the one who offered him a 14 crore bribe for some approval associated with Tatra trucks or something. I think the case also went to court.

    Going by the reaction over internet, I must say that Media failed in executing the hit-job. Money wasted.
