REPLACE ARMED FORCES WITH ALL NEW 'INTEGRATED DEFENCE OF INDIA AND OPERATIONAL TACTICS SERVICE - IDIOTS - BY JWO SUKUMARAN NAIR (RETD)


This has reference to a letter written by a Lt.Gen . to Justice Markandey Katju about the down grading of GOC, during Independence day celebration in New Delhi. It was a long established tradition that only the GOC, who is of Maj.Gen. rank accompanies the PM on to the Dias during ID celebration. This year the convention was flouted and a Babu accompanied the PM and GOC was made to follow in the third row, mind you, this happened on Army Day.

Down grading of defense status did not start from yesterday or day before. It has a history of over 6 decades.The nexus between politicians and bureaucrats started this project soon after the British left India.The first step was to downgrade the protocol hierarchy of C in C from No.2 to further down. Then his official residence "THE THEEN MOORTHY BHAVAN" taken away and made official residence of the then PM Late Sri Pt.J L Nehru.From then on began the systematic decimation and down grading which culminated in the present relegation to back row of Army Commander even on Army Day.

Now the soldier finds his position not even on the bottom step of the ladder precedence of protocol. He is well below the lowest CG employee. This situation will only worsen in time as long as defense matters are controlled by agricultural graduates, financial experts and some inept IAS Babus.

My humble submission is that, do away with defense service and entrust the task of guarding the borders and defense to IAS/IPS/IFS/and Other CG Service personnel. That is what the PM wants and he amply demonstrated it by praising the sacrifice of police personnel and conspicuously leaving out even a passing reference to defense personnel in his Independence Day/Army Day speech.

If this proposal gets the approval the finance ministry does not have to worry about implementing OROP/DL33/and 7 CPC recommendations to defense personnel. Imagine the huge saving on this account. The nation can build at least one billion “Shauchalayas”and all existing ex-srvicemen can be employed to keep them clean. Is i’nt it a bright idea. An Idea can not only change one’s life but the life of a nation, too.

I urge upon Babus to manipulate creation of an All India special Service with nomenclature"Integrated Defense of India and Operational Tactics Service" = "IDIOTS". Your status will soar sky high. Why delay? There is an adage “SHUBHASYA SHREEGRAM” Good thing are not to be delayed.

    very good comprehensively you have written decimation and belittling of our sacrifice and selfless service to the nation is being considered as a matter of unconcern by our MODI who has been enthroned by our people, having forgotten his pre poll promises, once saddled he kicks away our brothers as used toilet tissues. it is our nation let us be patient we should safeguard our country, on sensing this anarchy external forces may have chance to invade into our country. the first soldiers uprising was launched by vellore army people in the year 1807 then in the year 1857 full fledged soldier uprising , not mutiny it is in the interest of our nation

    thank you my dear JWO

  3. I really fail to understand why do we need a Defence Force when there is already almighty IAS available. Whether our top brass has courage to quit the post and offer it to Jaitely or IAS?

    It is none but our top brass is only and only responsible for this humiliating situation why blame others.

  5. While in service even a JCO meets a Gen Officer, When visits a mil establishment. Me felt very bad reading this post. Should have been done after changing the customs in favor of IAS or IPS. Really it is a cowardly altitude.

  6. Veteran Sgt Raminder Singh. We lost 1962 Chinese war due to these politicians and these babu's .Lest same things may happen again. These politicians and breauccrat are downgrading our defence and its personnel. People of India should be careful. We can,t allow our defence to be downgraded.without a strong defence India can,t become a developed country.

  8. U deserve all praise. AFs r no longer a desired for d nation for d NETAS! Why blame d BABUS? DE r sub-servient to netas. It is bcoz of d inept netas alone that d plight of d afs r in the current phase! Also equally responsible r d afs top commanders in d decision making level. AFs r in d last decade being led by some self-servient chiefs. NAMO could effectively downplay d three services chiefs when he declares with 56" chest during IDay celebration that India exists because of d dedicated services of d POLICE in JAL,THAL nd NAV! What a humiliation??? But SERVICES CHIEFS R COMFORTABLE THEN!

  9. Attitude and positions that AF take matters. Not helpless attitude . As part of Govt ,assert for rights and parity .Derive and take. As national AF ,cannot be passive .besides presentations ,representations ,pleading ,appealing ,judicial app.....etc ;there has to be action also .All are equal citizens and equal govt persons.
    Approach has to be result oriented.

  10. It's a good idea of forming 'IDIOTS' and let the jobs to be handed over to them on experimental basis. The kind of rich experience thereafter will teach them all. The importance of defence forces will be automatically recognized. At least start the experiment!
