+1. I see that there were references which indicate that Def. Minister A.K Anthony also should be dragged on the coals. And that Keralites generally do not make good defence ministers. Now that such a point of concern is also there, I feel a detailed investigation needs to be made. Anthony was C.M in Kerala, and have been a politician for quite some time now. One charge which no one has raised against him is corruption, the second being nepotism etc. He some times gets blamed for being too lazy, or not very prompt in giving responses etc. And the next allegation is that even though a silent and discrete individual he is not a fool, and does move up the system, without causing too much trouble any where.
There should be a detailed investigation on this. I don't think A.K Anthony alone can manipulate a system to such an extent. And I personally don't feel that A.K Anthony is a such a person who wished to see xyz as the COAS on a given date. The manipulations would have happened at multiple stages (with many being in the Army, and with non-Keralite officers running the show). Names are floating in BRF, but a formal investigation needs to be done. But I feel it is a "Bridge Too Far" as this may cause heart burns to many folks (if you ask me A.K Anthony may have the least of this, but many others would certainly have this in more sizeable quantity).
Not discounting the CTs about JJ and DK, there is more to this than meets the eye.
The opposition to idiot omar abdullah's insistence on the removal the AFSPA, ditto in the north east, MMS's singular lack of headway on his ill chosen path of making peace with the pakis, the vast tracts of Army land in major cities in prime locations being up for grabs, the pigheadedness of the Indian babus and the desire of the political class to put the faujis in their place egged on of course by the MOD morons. Many heavy weight politicos, NCP variety and their ilk are involved in the process of illegally unlocking defence lands and while there are currently muted whispers now, ( railway and airport authority, and port trust lands also) these heavy weights have the power to influence such matters,specially with elections looming large.
There is also the unlocking of the spectrum that the Army is to vacate.
None of the above is actually indicative of the true depth and venality of some of the army top brass and the sorry situation they have brought to pass.
Under the circumstances, this was the best way for Gen VKS to go.
