SPECULATIVE NEWS : PATIENCE NEEDED TO AVOID CONFUSION
A Sunder Rajan
Veterans have been short changed so many times by Politico/bureaucrat combine that we have no faith left in them.
In the present situation the news which is coming is all too confusing and we need to keep our patience. All news reports are speculations and are planted to confuse the environment by planned leaks by the wily bureaucrats.
Veterans must check the authenticity of the news before giving comments and advisory.
Our Chiefs are our representatives and are fully aware of the responsibility they carry. After all they are the chosen one to order the Military to go and face the enemy. Hence they will do their best to earn the respect of Military personnel in every situation. And this is the question of Izzat of Military.
The information which has come through many sources has indicated that Chiefs have taken a stand for the welfare and Izzat of the personnel they command. These are men of commitment and know their responsibility and hence will take actions which will be for the betterment of forces.
On the other hand RM is also committed to take care of the Military because keeping up the morale of forces and keeping them up in high operational readiness is his primary duty. He cannot falter on this.
It is likely to take some time for the real situation to emerge. We will probably know the real situation by the middle of next week.
Veterans must only believe the news coming from Armed Forces Hq.
Political parties are also aware that ESM/military vote bank is 5 to 6 crore strong and is not committed to any party.
This vote bank can swing and change the electoral scene if not given justice.
