Antony terms reports on shortage of tanks ammunition as 'rumours'

April 10, 2012 - New Delhi

Defence Minister A K Antony on Tuesday D said that reports of the Army being short of tank ammunition are just 'rumours'.

"These are all rumours. I can assure you that India is in a much more strong position as compared to the past," Antony told reporters here.

"There will always be some shortcomings and that is also in the process. We can't expect 100 per cent requirements to be fulfilled and also that entire force is not on the front. They are all spread over," he added.

Antony's statement is seen as a response to Army Chief General V K Singh's letter to the Prime Minister in March that armoured regiments were facing a critical shortage of ammunition.
