So, Sheela Bhatt (@sheela2010) has the following to say:
I don’t mean to say that IE scoop is not based on facts but, the fact is atmosphere in Delhi is very much vitiated. Must share this info.
My friend and senior journalist Virendra Kapoor had alerted me two months back that the intelligence agencies want to “plant” a story against army chief general V.K.Singh.
He told me the storyline, that the Home ministry guys want to plant, is that how Gen. Singh wanted to stage the coup against UPA government but... the top brass in the Army is not ready to join Gen.Singh.... He had insisted that I should double-check.
