    There are two things I wish to point out here. First is that the chief cannot single-handedly shift army commanders at will. The other is that Northern command, which is the most critical command, has been paralysed by the commander’s propensity to start enquiries. The issues are hillarious beginning from low weight eggs (48 g vs 40 g) . I know the tent scam but it would be interesting for you to find out what its all about.

    Brother, even I know the tent scam, and so do most journos….youre right that the Command is busy in inquiries and si doing nothing about operational preparedness. But in the recent past not many commanders have been moved in the middle of their tenure and atleast the officer should have been given the reason..Nandrajog superannuates after completion of his tenure, and P K Singh is sitting in Jaipur for the past two years !!……and by the way the Chief may not have all the powers but he definitely has a major say and his decision is usually not challenged and even Antony has decided to honour it!

    Dear Anon., How do you know the officer hasn’t been assigned any reason. As per my info he has been clearly told the reason for his movement. The reason cited was that he has been ineffective during past one year in this most strategic command. The move got accelerated with Benazir’s murder and ensuing unrest in Pak.

    If he hadn’t been asigned any reason, he should have asked for it in person rather than accusing others of undermining his cleanliness drive and going to media about it.

    LOL…ha ha ha ha…Benazir’ assasination and Pak unrest….what is an Indian army Commander supposed to do?…Last anon..please dot make me laugh so much……and by the way He didnt go to he media…..the media is hounding him and his poor ADC fr some comment…he doesnt even know whats happening ad if he was assigned a reason, then would he have the guts to approach the Antony, and even if he did approach, knowing the above reason, then that means, he doesnt agree with it and feels he is being fixed, which is true also.

    what kind of message does the current spat send to people serving under panag? The next time any lesser mortal gets a posting order and doesnt like the place or appointment, simply go to the print and electronic media; mix few facts with imagined fiction; conjure up some saucy cooked up story and bypassing authorised channels of communications, you seek intervention of the Govt Ministry! A dangerous unethical precedent indeed!God save indian army!Politicisation of the armed forces has earnestly and openly begun .

    This is why : http://ibnlive.in.com/news/post–adarsh-scam-exarmy-chief-in-more-trouble/134368-37.html
    If investigations had gone through justice may have come long ago. Where did the money from northern command go-adarsh and the other properties in Gurgaon.
    Not benazirs assasination, or incompetent performance.

    Those who know Antony know very well that he is only bothered aboput his honest image.He has no speaking skill,competence and personality.His only asset is his honesty and that he is very careful to nurture.Any General making any scam is not his cup of tea.Only his image of honesty should not be sullied.I remember late E.K.Nayanar's comment on him when Antony was the CM "Let him not wear a watch or underwear.That is not our concern.He should govern".Panag case is a typical one.He is not going to do anything himself against Gen.Kapoor since he knows that like Gen.Kaul had Nehru,Gen.Kapoor has some body in the 'High Command'.
