Overweight personnel 'public embarrassment' - Army : But silent on it's personnel yet to get VII CPC new Pay and Pensions
This article is not a case of investigative journalism.
It should not have found its way into the press/media.
It has been planted with an ulterior motive – probably a handout from the PRO Army at the behest of the COAS or the babus in the aftermath of the adverse comments in the wake of the 7CPC or to justify the 7CPC recommendations.
If it is the COAS, he has done immense harm to a fine service, just to score brownie points.
He may be physically fit himself but he has fat cells elsewhere.
Now seniority and weight (or BMI) will make the next Army chief.
In any case you are going to have an aging service since there is no PMR – everyone will superannuate.
Since supersession is not a way out, obesity may be.
The majority of the Army personnel are fighting fit – so it is unfair to paint everyone with the same BRUSH.
