Media report on troop movement unfortunate but true: Manish Tewari

New Delhi: Jan 10; Reviving the 2012 troop movement controversy, Congress leader Manish Tewari has said that a media report about two key army units moving towards Delhi without notifying the then UPA government was "unfortunate but true". 

Union minister and former Army Chief VK Singh, who had in 2012 dismissed the report, today slammed the Congress leader for his remark, saying "He (Tewari) has no work these days." 

Replying to a question at a book release function in the national capital on Saturday, Tewari, who was Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting in UPA government between October 2012 and May 2014, said, "At that point of time I used to serve in the Standing Committee on Defence. And it's unfortunate but the story was true. Story was correct". 

"I am not getting into an argument. All I am saying is that to the best of my knowledge that story was correct," he said.
