KOLKATA: Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee today refused to disclose the details of his discussions with Army chief Gen V K Singh on Thursday evening.

"I am not going to discuss this with the media. He met me as the chief of army staff," he said at his south Kolkata residence this morning.

When asked to comment on the age row between Singh and the government, the government's chief troubleshooter said several persons had met him and what transpired in those discussions is confidential.

Mukherjee also declined to comment on the recent controversy centring British-Indian novelist Salman Rushdie's India visit and exiled Bangladeshi author Tasleema Nasrin.
