Agitations of Anna and Ramdev 'timely and valid': Gen V.K. Singh
Ex-army chief General V.K. Singh has said the anti-graft agitations led by anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare and yoga guru Baba Ramdev to be 'timely and valid'
General Singh, who retired on May 31 this year, said that corruption is a major problem of India and it is the government who has to think how to tackle it. General Singh was in the town to offer prayers at the famous Banke Bihari temple, Vrindavan.
After his prayer, he talked to the mediapersons and pointed that are many serious issues that the country is facing now. He also said he has no immediate plans to join politics.
However, General Singh refused to talk about his 42 years serving with the Indian Army saying that, he has come to thank god who helped him do pass the tenure peacefully - citing confidentiality on many issues. He also hoped that government would do the best to maintain pride and honour of the force.
'At the end all was good and I wanted to thank God for his blessings' he added.
