ATHOME WITH ANTONY
Even as the defence ministry was rocked by sensational revelations on former army chief General V. K. Singh, Defence Minister A. K. Antony did not receive any visitors at the Army’s R& R Hospital, where he has been admitted after his surgery on September 15. On September 30, however, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde came to visit him. Shinde could be well- placed to advise him on post- operative care. He was in the US for a doctor’s appointment on May 25 when Maoists wiped out the Congress leadership in Chhattisgarh. This was ahead of lung surgery in Mumbai.
