ONE MAN JUDICIAL COMMISSION ON OROP AT CHENNAI ON 23 AUG 16
I had attended, as a silent spectator, *Justice Reddy's Meeting of ESM reps in Chennai on 23 Aug2016, held in conf Hall of Dakshin Bharat Area HQ from onward*!
Secy of AFVOA, Col Bhupinder began with a perfect intro, reminiscent of a Staff College presentation.
Col C T Arasu of TNESL, made a forceful, pt by pt presentation, in an absolutely precise manner W/O beating around the bush! It was apparent he had made perfect, research like preparations!
Thereafter Col Krishnan took the floor and covered the Pts in detail systematically.
A number of JCO/OR Veterans mostly from IAF & IN too spoke! Beauty was that each were able to encapsulate their arguments & present them in max 5 min!
*The beauty of the meeting was that in the nearly 2 hrs non stop presentation, except for 20 min tea break, by various personalities.
Justice Reddy Sat absolutely silent but with intense concentration! In between, he might have asked, may be, 4 or 5 clarifications!*
On my part, during Tea break, I managed to be alone with the Justice for a while. *When I told him that the Father of present Army Chief & Father of the L/Nk at the entrance gate were ESM and that an unhappy ESM at home and the sure knowledge that he is Un-happy ESM, will make for a highly demotivated Serving Soldiery, Justice Reddy ack gravely!*
You will be happy to hear Justice Reddy's concluding comments.
I Quote:-*"Instead of calling you to N Delhi and making you spend, I thought it will be better served for me to come to you! I am glad I did this.
With the First Public meeting in the North, which was chaotic & a shouting match, I am happy to see that progressively the meetings were more & more orderly*and* *this Chennai Meet has been the most productive and orderly! I am satisfied I have achieved clarity on a lot of points*.
*You have made the presentation perfectly. I assure you, from my side I will do the best I can!*" ...I Un-Quote
I have stated the above Not exactly Verbatim but *the essence is UNDILUTED*!
