As a minister, I cannot act just on a complaint… I did not get any written complaint at any stage.
A.K. Antony, Union Defence Minister, in Parliament

Just imagine, one of these men had the gumption to walk up to me and tell me that if I cleared the tranche, he would give me Rs 14 crore.

General V.K. Singh, Chief of Indian Army, on NDTV

What the present Army chief has said shows that he does not understand ground realities and had some motivation to make such remarks.

V.R.S. Natarajan, BEML Chairman, in The Indian Express

We have used Tatra trucks for Prithvi and Agni launches. In our experience, there has not been a bad performance ever or any troubles with Tatra.
V.K. Saraswat, DRDO Director General, quoted by wire agencies

Previous chiefs of Army Staff J.J. Singh and Shankar Roychowdhury had great things to say about Tatra Trucks.
