Antony said this while interacting with the media after giving away awards for Indian Coast Guard personnel.

"A military coup in our country is not even a remote possibility and there is no reason to fear about it," Antony said responding to a question on the statement of a former director general of military operations that the army in 2012 advanced towards the capital.

Antony also said that the defence forces acted responsibly and functioned on the directives of a democratically-elected government.
