New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has targeted the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) after Army Chief General Dalbir Singh alleged victimisation by Union minister VK Singh.
On Thursday Aam Aadmi Party said that the minister has become a 'national liability' and demanded his sacking.
AAP raised concerns over General Dalbir Singh's claims and demanded Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s attention on the issue.
"A person who intended to create a friction in the army, whose track record as an Army Chief was mired in controversies like his age row, who set up a parallel branch for snooping on ministers, one who compared Dalits with dogs while being a minister... there were reports that he also wanted to engineer a coup. Such a person had become a political liability for BJP, but now he has become a national liability. He should be immediately sacked," AAP leader Raghav Chadha told media.
General Dalbir Singh has alleged that he was "sought to be victimised" by Gen (Retd.) VK Singh, now a Union minister, with the sole purpose of denying him promotion as Army Commander.
Post retirement, VK Singh joined BJP and was elected to Lok Sabha from Ghaziabad. He has since been a Minister of State in the Narendra Modi government.
