Army has no busi­ness do­ing what Gen­eral Singh says it had done.

A. S. Du­lat, for­mer RAW chief and Kash­mir ex­pert

India Today - - COVER STORY -

The en­tire episode about the charges made against the for­mer army chief by the Gov­ern­ment and his re­tal­i­a­tion is un­for­tu­nate. Th­ese things should not be in the pub­lic do­main. Th­ese are highly sen­si­tive is­sues in­volv­ing op­er­a­tions and in­tel­li­gence, es­pe­cially in Jammu and Kash­mir. The rev­e­la­tions by the Gen­eral will re­sult in a set­back to the main­stream po­lit­i­cal process in the state. It is dif­fi­cult to know how much truth there is in what he is say­ing. First, the Army has no busi­ness do­ing what Gen­eral Singh claims it was. Also, when the gov­ern­ment re­port was leaked, the for­mer army chief should have sim­ply re­acted by say­ing that it is bunkum and de­manded a CBI en­quiry, some­thing that Union min­is­ter Fa­rooq Ab­dul­lah did.
