“Manish Tewari ji has nothing to do these days. There is this book of mine, ask him to read it and everything will be clear to him,” VK Singh said.
Tewari, while speaking at a book launch on Saturday, made stormy revealation that story is “unfortunate but true”.
Congress also dismissed Manish Tiwari’s claims. Senior leader PC Chako “clearly & categorically” denied this report.
“On behalf of Cong we want to clearly & categorically deny this report. There was no such troop movement without information of Govt” said PC Chacko.
“The report which appeared in Indian express in past, has been denied officially by authenticated sources” he added.
However, hours after his Tewari’s comments, senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar showed suspicion on the suspect. “It appears something did happen that night which was against the Constitution and democracy.” said Aiyyar.
Congress strongman and former minister Manish Tewari yesterday said that the Indian Express story on troop movement towards PM’s residence was ‘unfortunately true’.
Indian Express in its 2012 has claimed that two units of Indian Army made an unnotified movement towards Delhi. Of the two units, one was from Meerut and the other was from Haryana.
