SP, JD(U) want Army Chief sacked, BJP says no

NEW DELHI: Opinions were divided on Wednesday on the future of Army Chief V. K. Singh with the SP and the JD (U) saying he should be sacked after his letter to the Prime Minister on shortage of ammunition in the forces came out in open but the BJP saying it did not support the demand.

As the uproar over the letter led to angry scenes in the Rajya Sabha, Janata Dal-United leader Shivanand Tiwari was the first to demand the sacking of the Army Chief.

"This is a matter of serious indiscipline, the Army Chief should be sacked... if we don't take an action, it can become a bad tradition," said Tiwari.

Echoing him, Samajwadi Party leader Ramgopal Yadav told reporters outside Parliament that "responsibility should be fixed and strict action should be taken. If Gen Singh is responsible, he must be sacked and jailed".

The main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party took a slightly different view. Asked about the stand taken by ally JD (U), BJP spokesperson Ravishankar Prasad said: "We do not share the view."

Leaders from the Left demanded a thorough inquiry and said strict action should be taken. They were joined by the Biju Janta Dal (BJD).

"Examine into the leak, fix responsibility and punish whosoever is responsible," CPI-M leader Sitaram Yechury said.

V.K. Singh, in a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, has pointed out a shortage of arms and ammunition in the armed forces and questioned if the country is ready for a war.

According to reports, the letter, which was written March 12, states that Army tanks in the country have run out of ammunition. — IANS

4. Payment of 100% pension to the Veterans up to the age of 60 years (age for superannuation for central Govt employees) and payment of OROP thereafter.

5. Separate Ministry or a Defense Board (like that of Railway) for Armed Forces Personnel.

6. Cadre Review (being done at every 5 years in other Departments).

7. Date of Birth (DOB) issue of Army Chief himself.

8. Difference of pension between two immediate Ranks is more than Rs.11,000/-PM

9. With drawl of existing Rank Pay by 6th CPC (replacing with grade pay to give additional emoluments to civilian employees and also to create an equation between civ and Mily.)

10. Majors with more than 15 years of service equated with cadets and Hony Lt. (PB-3).

The above are some of the major issues that are occupying internet mails and blogs nowadays. The blame is put on the babus of MOD and the Politicians. But one must think honestly - Are they fully responsible for these omissions. What is the role of the Service HQs?
