Slander, to serve political purposes and save legacies.

If somebody is tries to stage a coup, what does the Govt. do? Wait? instead of arresting him for treason how about atleast after retirement?

Steaming pile of horse manure if you ask me.

well the general had his reasons to bring out the snake in the basket , but as an army man it is not expected from him to spill out all what the army is doing in j&k in a fit of rage . He has joined politics he should have known the implications but spilling out something sensitive is not what is expected from him

The General is being framed. Even if the General of the Indian Army has made mistakes, the Government should cover up and handle the situation more maturely:
1) to ensure morale of the forces
2) confidence of the people in it's Army.
3) maintain India's branding advantage vis-a-vis foreign policy i.e. our Army is not like that of other nations.

The General is being framed. Even if he were to blame, the Government should have acted maturely to ensure:

1. Morale of the forces.
2. Public trust in the Army Institution
3. Maintain India's moral high ground vis-a-vis our neighbours – our army isn't like theirs

The General, Army, Foreign Policy, Economy, Investor confidence, Inflation, etc. are all collateral damage in the UPA's hunger to maintain power and eat money.

V. K. Singh may have been honest, but he was not fit to head the army. Was a very divisive figure and even if there existed divisions, he should have tried to minimise them, but he further deepened them through his words and actions. The hope of cleansing the army was replaced by crisis after crisis. Now the latest revelations about him and by him should elicit serious action by the government, even if that would be seen as being politically motivated.

General is being targeted by the congress government. I have doubts S.Tyagi and not about V.K.Singh. This government doesn't care who is corrupted or who is doing good, all they care is staying in power. Government is trying to shield S.Tyagi and arrest V.K.Singh. What V.K.Singh done is 100% right, this is the only option he has been left with in this country, else nothing will come out. UPA is the most corrupted government of the last 67 years. Manmohan singh approved the rule to save the criminal politicians just to nullify the court judgement. What are they, mocking us?

Between India's Army Chief and India's Politicians – the question is who do I trust?

No one trusts these corrupt con-gress and other politicians, who are in bed with arms agents.

The Army chief OTOH has spent an entire lifetime and career, sacrificing for his nation.

The answer is very simple, and everyone knows it.

We've seen this movie before. Politico-bureaucratic manipulation of the armed forces leading to disaster. Remember '62? VKS took on corruption- first Sukna, then TATRA. The powers that be decided to "fix" him- parochial gains trumping national security. The game continues. The only beneficiaries will be the enemies of the Indian state. Where is the Official Secrets Act when stuff is "leaked" at will to a pliant press? Bah…can you spell f#@& up on a grand scale?

Frankly speaking I feel that there are two aspects to this entire fiasco . One from the Government's part & the other from our Ex Army Chief . Why wasn't the DOB issue sorted out before he was elevated to Army Chief ? The entire animosity had started right then which later snowballed in major differences including a embarrassing scenario of a serving Chief fighting out his case against the Government in Supreme Court in full public glare . Sometimes wonder about the ACR ( Annual Confidential Report ) process & the Physiological profiling which couldn't ever hint of an… Read more »

In My opinion V K Singh has full right to put his point across table, just because in Indian democracy it hasn't happened in past doesnot means it cannot happen now. I think V K singh is assertive and the so called intellectual class with absolutely no idea of ground realities of defence is scared of new competitions from V K Singh. Everyone excepts him to stay away from Media/Politics and lead a quite life just as other Generals have done.

+ Anonymous @ 3.04AM. Am surprised by the inert attitude of RM and PMO. The person under question had been your highest ranking army officer till yesterday, has done things whish supposedly were done while keeping them in loop. And when the very same acts are questioned to the detriment of national interest, these guys choose to conveniently wash their hands off? Despicable. Same of IE group. At the same time, the General should have maintained some restraint about the fund usage.

What is interesting is the current Chief whose elevation Gen VK singh tried to prevent carried out a comprehensive inquiry under his supervision and closed the case of TDS and sent the file to Defense Ministry in March. But suddenly this report is leaked by concerned politicians after the General is seen on the same Dias with Modi. But here the General got panicky due to some of his advisers may be and came out with some sort of Defense of TDS by citing national security interests of India. Personally I feel here he boobed.Silence would have been golden. Now… Read more »

At the end of the day the saying "people in glasshouses shouldnt throw stones" is indeed true in the case of the Govt vs Gen VK.Governments mistake :To give Gen VK due credit , he kept largely out of the media in the last six months or so – popping up mainly at ex service mens rallies.All was relatively calm.What was the need then for the Govt to leak the report after he appeared with NaMo ?

This is nothing but "Political Fixing" by the Congress lead Govt. of a Hapless retired General of the Indian Army.The Govt is trying to incriminate a Honest and upright "officer of the highest order" for holding an election rally along with "Narendra Modi." This is nothing but a political witch hunt. Where was Govt. when his TSD was trying to over throw elected Govt and trying to snoop on highly placed defence offcials, sleeping or what?

A state like Jammu and Kashmir cannot have such long run of stability without some monetary appeasement, given the strong Anti-Indian Sentiments that often come across resounding from the state.Though an economic policy like this might have come infront of the common masses for the first time, the political community must have known about this for very long. No secret can remain closed for so long. So what political class is doing is a mere lip service against what genera. Truth is they know without such policies a very unstable state like J&K will hard to administer. So what is… Read more »

Eight former Army chiefs on Friday rejected former Army chief Gen VK Singh's statement that Army has been paying money to certain ministers in J&K since independence to bring in stability there.

"No funds were ever provided by the Army, to any politicians, political party or any NGO in their tenures and nor would they have allowed that," the former Army chiefs said in a joint statement issued here.

He is a whistle blower after retirement against the corrupt UPA. Even the army chief is in cudgels against a despotic regime let alone the civilians. If he had leaked this information during his service either he is court martial or tried for treason .

He is the only tiger who can do this kind of stunts, after all he is a commando and a real commander of Indian army. In his tenure no one dare to touch Indian border, but now the weaker pakis are coming inside our border and cutting our soldiers heads, that is because of our leadership of army and politics. Narendra Modi should become the PM and VK Sing Deffence Minister of India. Jya Hind…………..

It may not be intended but it seems you are pushing your friends – off and on on your blog. First the wannabe General in Colonel's uniform (ex) and then the hit man Unnithan. Of course the expectation remains that politics is mucky, bureaucrats are slimy, but the army general should just sit his there and do his shit…huh!. Time to play the game. Gee self interest rules..National interest or personal interest.. its about one self. The wannabe gen and his stupid views, Unnithan for his readership and Gen. Singh nursing the grouse.

V. K. Singh is a disgusting part of the Indian Army who we do not want to see in any media.

He tried all crooked methods to get his service extended. He slept all along when he was getting his promotions and then he gets up. It is a disgust. He should be stripped of all military ranking or status he enjoys as an ex-service man.

Never again India wants to see someone like him.

I have seen many officers loosing their spirit to serve the country by the time they reach top positions. (why?..The reason, is the system). The system ensures that truth speaking, honest guy never gets the promotion. It's only those who wag their tail all the time go up in their career. Narenda Modi and Gen V.K.Singh,,, best combination.

More than half of the comments are from the people who have never even served in the ARMY. Gen VK Singh is the third officer after Field Marshal Manekshaw and General Cariappa who are out spoken to the countries interest. When our politicians do not even know the difference between a motor and mortar they have no right to even raise such things. Arrogance is the nature of every politicians and bureaucrat as he knows he makes the law. Its a big time nexus. Let every citizen and politician serve in the Regular Indian Army and than see how many… Read more »

Looking at the state of affairs around me, it is nearly impossible to restrict myself to comment on a single issue such as this. A shamelessly ambitious and indiscreet General is merely one amongst the multitude of this country's problems. A Government that proudly flaunts an acute God complex, a legislature that is replete with political opportunists, a judiciary that is inefficient as well as ineffective, a business community that focuses on profit maximization through mitigation of social responsibility and a society that is apathetic, selfish and corrupt are all equally responsible for our present condition.

I think VK Singh is a man of character that makes a true leader and a general. Unlike many commentators here who in the name of anonymity are snakes in the grass called "Services" and are giving vent to their crooked allegiances, frustrations and failures…..

The government of course is not shocked at the Gen's revelations. It's the media and politicians who are trying to make a mountain out of a molehill. Toppling regional govts and paying to local administrators and politicians to maintain stability from the SS pool at the discretion of IB/MI reps is age old practice, right from the time of the British. But yes, sometimes this method has been overused. Take the case of the north-east. It is a graveyard of toppled regional govts by successive power in the centre, especially by the successive home ministry. The north-east is a laboratory… Read more »

I believe VK Singh is telling the truth but he should have refrained from disclosing such information in public as it is such a "Congress" thing to do. [ Read Congress as "Hurt", "Hurtful" or "Bad" ]Now that he is joining politics he should know better that Gandhi's are masterful in doing "Congress" things to others in order to instigate them.He should have patience, behave like a sanyasi and get elected. And then he can do all "Congress" things with the Congress People. Personally I think there should be a restriction of 2-3 years for retired generals to plunge into… Read more »

Since Independence Congress has set an example for corruption and malpractices in governance. The only true good periods for politics were during non Gandhi PMs. Having made the above observations, Ex-Gen VK Singh has done the unthinkable in Indian Army's code of conduct, by playing politics while in office for personal benefit of extended tenure. He should have abided by govt's position regarding his tenure as the govt had appointed him the chief and had the right to decide whether he stays or not. Everything else is just plain drama to vindicate himself.

VKS committed many mistakes. He escaped till now. Now his sins are catching up with him. He did not pay for attacking his masters while in service. He did not pay for fudging his date of birth. I had written earlier during the age row that the Govt should do nothing because VKS is an immature fellow and that he will hang himself. He has finally provided proof even to his die hard supporters that he is a maverick not worthy of the high position bestowed upon him.

VK Singh is an anti-establishment crusader. People should respect his dare-and-bare attitude and his selfless spirit of nationalism. My father too is a retd colonel from the Army and most military officers admire Gen Singh for his bluntness. After all thats what they are taught at the military academy….
Politicians are used to sycophant civil servants and sycophant civil servants are used to spineless police men, so they cannot swallow this army man's assertiveness. I am sure Gen Singh knows some dirty secrets and thats why govt. is desperate to tarnish his image. The anti-nationals will NEVER succeed….

His conduct is extremely undignified and unbecoming a retired Army Chief. By associating with political parties and engaging in vitriolic attacks against the Government, he will only do a disservice to national security by eroding the faith of our servicemen in the Government which obviously will take a toll on their morale.

The General has no doubt made mistakes in dealing with his powerful adversaries. He could have been more careful while speaking on issues. But there is no doubt about his personal integrity and ability. That his career would be known more by his date of birth issue and not his work is also because of his poor media skills. There is no doubt that the arms lobby is gunning for him but I have not seen a single report on the evil arms lobbies in any media till now.
