New Delhi: Launching an attack on the Army Chief Gen V K Singh for writing a letter to the Prime Minister on the preparedness of the army, Union Minister for Overseas Indian Affairs Vayalar Ravi on Wednesday said this shows "frustrations" of an individual, who was compelled to withdraw his petition on the age row in the Supreme Court.
   
Ravi also said that the Army chief should have written to Defence Minister A K Antony instead of shooting the letter to the Prime Minister to maintain a decorum of the system.
   
"I do not know what the issue is. I have not seen the letter. The Army is a disciplined force. (He) could not get an extension even by the court. May be a frustrated man suffers," Ravi told reporters outside the Parliament.

Asked if Gen V K Singh should have written to Defence Minister A K Antony instead of the Prime Minister on the issue, Ravi said, "That is the maryada. But I am saying... whatever he does is action of a frustrated individual."
