Soldier, a general for whom birth dates did not matter, politician, minister, VIP guest at the Pakistan High Commission...and perhaps many more. Being so versatile always creates problems for these Indian ‘Presstitutes’.

But that is not enough for sections of the media which have been targeting me for years! Remember the Indian Express and its editorial team reported on how the earlier government was rattled by its stories on troop movements near Delhi. Such baseless reporting can only be termed as the work of the ‘Presstitutes’.
