Giving his ruling on a privilege motion moved by NC ministers, the Speaker said that he would summon the former Army chief very soon.
      
"By accepting the privilege motion to summon General Singh, the demand of the people of the state has been fulfilled and democratic values have been strengthened," the statement said.
      
The party said that it had become imperative to summon the former Army chief and ask him to reveal the names of persons who were allegedly paid money.
       
"General Singh's allegations have brought every politician under the scanner and people of the state have the right to know which politicians and ministers were paid money (by the Army)," the statement said.
