BJP’s privilege notice against Antony

Statesman News Service |

New Delhi, 7 August: BJP leader Mr Yashwant Sihna today moved a breach of privilege notice against Defence Minister A K Antony, accusing him of misleading Parliament on the killing of five Indian jawans along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir. “It was a most laughable statement that the defence minister of India made,” Mr Sinha said.
“Mr Antony is not only guilty of misleading the House with his statement, but he has further compounded his guilt by getting the Army’s statement, which was issued before his statement, changed,” he said.
Mr Sinha said the Army had clearly stated that Pakistani soldiers were involved and now they have been made to retract. “The defence minister and the Centre are speaking in a language more acceptable to Pakistan than to us,” he said.     pti
