V.K. Singh

Time To Act

Apr 01, 2012 B. Raman

It is time to seriously consider the UK system of Defence Advisory (DA) notices requesting the media, the journos and others to exercise restraint in reporting and commenting on sensitive matters of national security

Reassure The Armed Forces & The Public

Mar 31, 2012 B. Raman

The government should immediately initiate action to address the deficiencies in the state of our defence preparedness pointed out by the COAS.

Missing The Point

General V.K. Singh actually did take the best possible action. The fellow offering the bribe was a retired officer over whom Army has no jurisdiction. What is the defence minister's excuse?

The Battle Within

Mar 29, 2012 Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

Instead of worrying about who leaked the Army Chief's letter to the PM, it is time to look at the contents and the issues it raised

Get To The Truth

There have been serious acts of omission by the COAS as well as by the defence minister and these amount to a serious case of dereliction of duty. The PM should ask the cabinet secretary to take over the responsibility for further enquiries

Interpreting Interceptors

Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

That the Army Chief could even have considered deploying interceptors to monitor conversations of personalities in the age-row is yet another hallmark in foolishness.

The General Deserves Justice

Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

Never mind the orchestrated media blitz, don't be swayed by the wind: just read the Supreme Court order. The date of birth issue is far from being closed. The ball is in the government's court.

Who Is The Raja In MoD?

Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

If the former telecom minister A. Raja is the scapegoat of the 2G Scam, who is going to be the scapegoat in Age Row conspiracy of General V.K. Singh?

Getting Particular

Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

Today's hearing of Supreme Court in the case of Gen V.K. Singh’s date of birth (DOB) is the first sign of government machinations getting exposed...

The Shikhandi Salvo

Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

So what do we make of the latest reports of the ministry of defence ordering the Adjutant General to change the date of birth of Gen V.K. Singh to 10 May 1950 (from 1951), through an undated letter signed by a Deputy Secretary level officer?

Indian Army: Whose Personal Fiefdom?

Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

Exposing ‘and punishing’ the conspirators and co-conspirators by the Supreme Court is now as important as giving a verdict on the DOB of General V.K. Singh.
