Hon’ble PM of India Shri Modi Ji
No Vijay Yatras Against Army, Politicising Cantonment roads hurts the Army, harms the nation and jeopardizes security – Says Nalin Mehta.
Anyone who has ever felt anything for the Indian Army cannot help but be taken aback by the spectacle of political Vijay Yatras that were seen in the last few days on some of our army cantonment roads. Cantonment are the bedrock of the Indian army. Event if you think that some cantonment roads needed to be opened up in wider public interest, televised images of lower-level BJP workers celebrating a Vijay yatra in Pune cantonment – swarming around on bikes and SUVs draped with party flags distributing sweets and posing for self-congratulatory sound bites outside military gates-made for terrible optics.
Even if there have often been long standing tussles over sacrifice areas but these have always been resolved at local levels. Even as the public respect for soldiers has increased in recent decades, many in the defense forces have begun to feel a growing lack of understanding of their concerns within the bureaucracy. They see the current controversy as reflecting that larger malaise. This is why it is important to move cautiously on this matter and address it holistically.
Many articles / write-ups have papered in the print media. An arbitrary order of the RM to throw open the military area roads, not only that even on electronic media debates have generated heat. The pet barking dogs of the ruling party have not spared any effort to defend the senseless order of the RM.
What these restrictions meant ? A good conduct, discipline and order. Restrictions by the cantt board did not restrict the movement within the areas but only restricted the entry point. Now the gates have been opened like prostitutes entry points. So that goonda and unruly mobs of the ruling party can create BALWAS, and show their JALWA,. They did so in Pune and Lucknow .
RM’s order was like a TALIBANI FARMAN, stupid senseless atrocious. Madam RM what have you achieved (a) Enhanced the INSECURITY around the army cantt’s (b) Given impetus to indiscipline, given authority to your boorish, goonda elements to create vandalism in the cantt areas (c) Tried to dilute the discretionary powers of local commanders (d) You have succeeded in pleasing your local MLA’s MP’s for vote bank politics.
The two Women ministers that is SI and you NS have shown immaturity and lack of discharging your constitutional responsibilities. Both of you need to be sacked but may be NM and AS have special consideration for both of you. Only GOD CAN HELP.
Wake up India, Stakes are high, are we the people of India Vigilant.
