Press Trust of India  |  Tirupur (TN) 

Sunday said an coup would never happen in apparently referring to alleged planting of false stories that the under the then V K Singh had planned such a move in 2011-12.

"Few days ago, the nation showed its utter disgust at a story of how a top kept pushing a narrative that our will do a coup.

Every Indian knows that our army can do no such thing, but look at the attitude," said addressing a public rally here.

The Prime Minister's comments come days after Union minister and former Army V K Singh said he had written to seeking a probe into the alleged planting of false stories about an attempted coup during the in 2012.

Singh had said "loves the country and can never go against it."

Modi also mentioned about the government fulfilling the four decades old demand for One Rank One Pension, and said "also leaves no opportunity to belittle our Army."

He said one of the leaders used unpardonable language for the army chief, at a time when the went across the border to do a surgical strike.

said the NDA government "is a government for each and every Indian. We are leaving no stone unturned for future-proofing "

His comments assume significance in the wake of repeated attacks from main opposition DMK and its friendly parties in that the BJP government at the Centre was working against the interests of the minorities.

Explaining what he meant by future-proofing India, the said it was a reference to a holistic approach to development that safeguards the well-being of our "coming generations."

He cited the 'speed doubling' seen in the pace of road constructions, Bharat Mala project that connected the remotest corners of the nation and 'Sagarmala' that harnessed the power of ports, among other things, while referring to the holistic approach to development.
