Defence Minister A K Antony on Saturday said the decision to order a CBI probe into the Adarsh society scam was recommended by Army Chief General V K Singh after a preliminary inquiry.

"After an inquiry, the Army Chief himself recommended a CBI probe (into the scam)... armed forces are against all types of wrongdoings," Antony said when asked if the order could demoralise the armed forces.

"Whenever we find wrongdoings, we always take action. Actually when the incident took place, I got a complaint from a Lok Sabha MP. I sent it to the Army Chief for an inquiry. After an inquiry, he himself recommended for a CBI probe," Antony told reporters on the sidelines of a function in Thiruvananthapuram .

On the Opposition's demand for resignation of Union Telecom Minister A Raja over the 2G Spectrum scam, Antony said "I will respond to that tomorrow".
