Srinagar: Former Army Chief V K Singh should be summoned by the J-K Legislative Council to explain his remarks on alleged army pay-offs to political leader, the ruling National Conference demanded today.
Speaking on a discussion motion in the Upper House of J-K, NC MLC Devender Singh Rana said the allegations levelled by the former army chief “have not only brought disrepute to the Army and the country, but have also cast aspersions on the democratic process in the state”.
“Time has come that V K Singh be called to the House. Let him stand here so that we ask questions. You (Chairman Amrit Malhotra) be the judge and let the truth come before the people of Jammu and Kashmir,” Rana said.
The NC legislator also demanded that the House pass a resolution asking the Centre to probe the allegations.
