The Delhi Union of Journalists (DUJ) condemns the abusive words used by Union Minister Gen. (Retd) V.K. Singh while attacking media persons. Such derogatory remarks coming from persons occupying high offices cannot be accepted. Tolerating and accepting dissent is the hallmark of any democratic government and its functionaries. The DUJ regrets the Twitter attack by Gen. Singh. The least that Gen. Singh should do is to tender an unconditional apology.
