A letter by General V.K.Singh to the Prime Minister , dated March 12 2012, has created a chaos amongst political parties. While politicians are demanding immediate sacking of the Army Chief because of leakage of secret letter.Some are of the view these topics should have been dealt with the Defence Minister and not the PM while others find it a way of expressing frustration,by the Army Chief because of his ‘Age Row ‘ which he lost in the Court of Law.
Well, whatever the reason may be,more than the letter leaking out , it is the concerning content of the letter which should be highlighted. If the alarm raised by the Army Chief about inadequate and obsolete weapons and lack of ammunition, is true, guess where is the country heading towards! With possible enemies in the left and right, both looking for opportunities to penetrate inside the borders, can our politicians afford to be so lenient to divert the topic towards the leakage of the letter ?
