Who is Lt-Gen Tejinder Singh?
As I see it, here Nalapat is not trying to prove the links with Arms cartel and the next Chief. He is here mildly making indirect accusation to goad the coming Chief (as well as laments)to rise above all those allegations.
Many times we have seen such script in Indian movies and perhaps it could be a personal experience. Elderly person to younger one, "Beta, I'm hearing those things. I know you are a good boy and I'm not going to blindly believe those things. You have earned a very good name for yourself and family. This is a situation to rise above all those petty things and prove yourself that indeed you are fit for the job and at the same time prove that all those allegations are wrong."
It is the same script that Nalapat is playing here.
He brings to print all those allegations and controversy raging quoting sources and try to say he can't verify all those things - meaning, he doesn't want to, at this time to see the merit of those allegations.
Then, he brings the topic of BKS being close to this UPA Govt but quickly mentions, he is widely believed to have excellent record in counter-insurgency operations( If Nalapat job is to pin the General, he could have used this info in a different way, making hay of all those allegations).
He continues, even Antony who earned the moniker St. Antony for 'displaying' honesty too seems to back you in this rat race and you have been made as next Chief( I see more lamenting here). So rise above all those petty things, and prove yourself the man worth for the job.
Quoting his last para that gives the message.
Sources tracking procurement within the services are,in the words of a senior officer, afraid that "once the new Chief of Army Staff takes office,enquiries initiated by General Singh may get discontinued",thereby enabling officers guilty of graft and worse to escape. Hopefully,such a suspicion will be shown to be unfounded,come June 1,2012,and that the new Chief of Army Staff will continue the house-cleaning initiated by his predecessor. General Bikramjit Singh needs to show that he is in the tradition of those fighting graft,rather than in that of certain predecessors who are known to have done the opposite.
