In a statement on behalf of Surender Singh, IAC claimed that army and government were only talking about sanctioning his pension and not actually giving it to him.

The IAC said the government did not give it in writing to Singh that he has been sanctioned pension.

"Surendra Singh has termed the claims of Army as white lies," the statement said.

On Twitter, Arvind Kejriwal said Army accepted all their allegations. "Pension has been sanctioned just now. So he was not getting it till now," he said.

He also claimed, "Army accepts that medical card was made in October 2012. This means he was getting treated from his own money so far."
