The Defence Minister mentioned that two highly decorated veterans, a former air chief and a major general have now denied signing it. She said that even the Rashtrapati Bhavan has denied receiving any such letter and it is already out in the public domain. “It is very worrying that if even people’s consent are not being taken and fake letters, fake allegations are being signed by some vested interest groups, it is absolutely condemnable”, said the Defence Minister.

It is notable here that several veterans have now denied signing the letter and refused to endorse the statements made in the letter. Army veterans like Air Marshall Suri, General SF Rodrigues, Former Army Vice Chief Lt General ML Naidu have said that their consent was not taken for the letter and that the did not sign any such letter.
