New Delhi :  Indian politician and a retired four star general in the Indian Army General Vijay Kumar Singh (V K Singh) who is a Union Minister in the Modi Government, on Sunday apologized to journalists barring a small section of mediapersons who he said were carrying out a "motivated campaign" against him.

"It is only an insidious campaign in which the arms lobby is working overtime. They were not able to subdue me when I was the Army chief. They have carried on," VK Singh said and accused a former senior Army official of being a part of the conspiracy. "I won't go beyond saying as to what relationships he enjoys with various chaps.

There are a lot of people who were paid by him. So, obviously, you have some journalists and others who will write what they are told," he said. "I have briefed PM Narendra Modi on the orchestrated campaign against me," he said. Asked if the arms lobby was still active against him, he said that it was very much so.

"They did a lot to dole out resources when the elections took place. We know how much money was received by various people. They are active. They are very active. Their sole aim is to how to get me out," he said.

He was reacting to the controversy which erupted after his visit to Pakistan High Commission here on March 23 for a reception. He was again at the centre of a controversy recently over his remarks comparing the Yemen evacuation operation with his visit to the Pakistani mission. Singh had later sparked a controversy with his remarks against a TV channel for playing up the issue.
