Full faith in Army Chief: Antony
Tribune News Service
New Delhi, February 13
The government appears to have put the controversy over the Army Chief’s age behind with Defence Minister AK Antony today stating that he has full confidence in Gen V K Singh.

"The government has confidence in the present chief and that was conveyed in the Supreme Court also. Everything is clear and we have confidence in him," Antony told reporters when asked if Gen Singh has offered to resign after the apex court verdict.
Antony was speaking on the sidelines of a function organised by IDSA - a defence and strategic think-tank - here.

The Defence Minister’s remarks came on the day Gen Singh began a visit to Britain, the first by an Indian Army Chief since 2008. The Supreme Court held on February 10 that government's decision on Singh's date of birth as May 10, 1950, will apply to his service matters, forcing him to withdraw his plea contending that he was born a year later.

"I am very happy this controversy is over. It is my request to all my colleagues and all of you (the media) to please close this chapter and work together to strengthen national security," Antony said. After the Army Chief withdrew his petition, there has been intense media speculation that he would quit. But now the remarks by the Defence Minister indicate that Gen Singh is unlikely to step down.
