Hyderabad: Defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman condemned those in India who, she said, are voicing an interest in Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan getting the Nobel Peace Prize for sending IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman back to India. Such people are against India and the armed forces, she said. She was speaking at a meeting of ex-servicemen organised in Secunderabad on Sunday morning.

She accused the Congress of speaking against the armed forces. She said her government had taken lots of steps to fulfil its commitment to the armed forces and ex-servicemen.
