 This honesty and integrity stuff about Antony and MMS has gone on for too long.

They are both part and parcel of a bandit 'government'.

 "A 4x4 Tatra truck, for example, costs between 40 to 50 lakhs in Europe. It was sold by BEML to the Army at nearly double that price. Ashok Leyland and Tata Motors supply similar trucks for 16-18 lakhs.
Soon after assuming office, Gen. V.K. Singh stalled an order for 788 new Tatra trucks approved by his predecessor Genenral (Retired) Deepak Kapoor, arguing the vehicle was overpriced and underperformed. And so the attempt to bribe him" 

In any other country the uproar would be against the plunder - if 5000+ crore is made on just these trucks - imagine the overall scope of corruption just in MoD and multiply by the number of ministries.In "secular" india the uproar is  against the General for not following protocol which for them is the biggest issue . Sack him if you cant silence him and  put in someone like a prathiba patel so its convenient for all of them .. double faced scoundrels.

 Rather than focussing on the key issues of the ongoing plunder and the terrible state of defence services, the politicians of all parties have got together to raise bogus diversionary issues of protocol, discipline etc.

We deserve Pratibha Patil and her like.

Jaswant Singh wrote very nice article on this whole drama:
http://www.indianexpress.com/news/governance-please/929622/0

A must read.

On light side:
Interviewer: "Jaswant ji, since we are at the end of this interview, can I ask you a personal question?"
Jaswant Singh: "Indisputably"
Inv: "What is your hobby? What do you do in your free time?"
JS: "Oh ...... memorize the dictionary".

[But he told me, “I don’t want to proceed with it”. I don’t know why. He said, “I don’t want to proceed with it”] ... did the General mean that he (V.K.Singh) did not want to proceed with it; but what was unsaid was he probably wanted his boss, Mr.Antony to proceed with it. And Antony just took the General's statement and kept quiet? The General reports to him for goodness sake! Antony's inaction is criminal negligence of duty. Being good is not enough, you need to lead/govern!

If news of 14 crore bribe gets Anthony into a 2-minute state of shock,  I guess 2G or Coalgate scam figures will put him into a coma.

A nation ruled by 'Shikhandis'.Shikhandi is an eunach in the great epic of Mahabharata.As if Manmohan Singh was not enough now Sonia has brought yet another Shikandi,in A.K.Antony.Both of them want to be known as 'good and clean' people than do what is good for the country.In the olden days kings would post eunachs to guard their harems.Sonia is protecting herself by picking this type of people to protect her absolute rule over the country.Congress party will now cleverly divert the focus away from this sordid situation and everything will be quiet on the western front.

Is It just a coincidence ? I believe it is a clearly choreographed charade by parivar to get at honest ministers. First the age row and now the leaked letter is clear strategem to discredit Anthony. The many imangined issues related to government are cleverly laid the doorstep of Man Mohan Singh. The parivar has started preparing for next loksabha election. It seems that the issue would be corruption. Since its own political wing is much more corrupt, it carrying out the attacks through groups like Anna Hazare group and alleged moles in Indian Army.

The way Anna Hazare group is attacking democratic institutions is reminiscent of Ayodhya movement when parivar had declared that it was not bound by the law of land and Supreme Court. This time parliament is in its crosshairs. Its an age old Nazi strategy to attack and destroy democratic institutions by rousing the mob by using real or imagined issues.

The way leaked letter has played havoc with Army morale and security preparedness of India is a clear indicator that parivars claim of patriotism is hogwash.

 The original Mr Clean, husband of Sonia, Rahul Gandhi whose name is constantly immortalized by spending crores every year, was the one who signed Tatra deal (along with the infamous Bofors). His friend Rajiv Rishi was the one who gains the most from this deal.

http://www.dnaindia.com/india/report_vk-singh-bribe-row-congress-fears-probe-may-implicate-rajiv-gandhi_1668703

It is time to investigate all the deals signed by Rajiv Gandhi -  the commissions and cost analysis of all deals.

 The patron saint of virtuosity Laloo has demanded (commanded) the sacking of the army chief.

His command must be obeyed.

What about Mrs Rabri Devi as the Army chief?

One source said that Tejinder Singh "operates in tandem with a Major Hooda (retd) and his son, both of whom are well known to Karthik Chidambaram,the influential son of Home Minister P Chidambaram"

The saints are clean. So is Sonia. So is Manmohan. And Antony. The crooks are all team Anna and Sangh and, shush, be careful otherwise that monster Modi will come!

WHAT IS MOST AT STAKE THAT EVERY INDIAN WORTH HIS/HER SALT MUST KNOW IS OUR HONOUR ESP. OF OUR ARMED FORCES AND THEIR MORALE ...

Through out our long history there is at least one virtue that we have always had is to hold our fighting men who take oath and commit to die for their motherland ... it is one institution that in indepedent India has been held bove all ... just think of those chaps who are patrolling the freezing glaciers in high Himalayas watching the enemies across ... what would they be thinking of the political shenanigans that are going on in Delhi ...they are not our servants but our saviours but tell this to these corrupt creepy cretin politicians littered all over Lutyen's Delhi and s(h)itting in our parliamnt ...

The cost of different types of TATRA TRUCKS- 2 axile, 4 axile, 6 axile, 8 axile, 12 axileetc etc- sold by the Chez Company must not be a secret- its a commrecial activity. The cost at which same types of Trucks are sold by BEML- the Indian Public Sector Comany to Army also must be available with the Govt. Just publish it- and who is the SAINT will become evident.  Will some one post the comparitive costs???

Damn Britishers! From playing midlemen to Somali pirates and making a cut on their ransom, they are the real middlemen in this world! What sort of living is this killing the people (czeck company) who produces the Tatra truck and the one (Indian army) who uses it!!!
 

However, it is not real Britishers this time. It is an Indian, Ravi Rishi, an ex IIT alumni, co- chairman of Tatra Trucks, and Chairman of Vectra, U.K., who opened a British firm to cream the profit, with the blessings of St. Anthony!!
