Sad and unwise move by Army Chief of India (Age Controversy)

Presently, whole of India is witnessing a drama over the age controversy of present Army Chief of India Gen. V.K. Singh. The main part of controversy started with request of Gen Singh to Government of India to change his date of birth from 10th May, 1950 to 10th May, 1951. As per official records available with government of India, age of Gen Singh is 10th May, 1950 and he took earlier promotions with this date only; now Gen Singh wants to change it to 10th May, 1951 because as per his stand, it is his original date of birth and it matches with record of his 10th class certificates.

He sent request to Government of India for making changes in his date of birth; however, Government of India rejected his application thus making it compulsory for him to retire by 31st May. 2012. Yesterday, this controversy took big shape when Army Chief went Supreme Court against government of India. It is first time in the history of Indian army that any Army Chief has moved Court for settling his issues with Government. This whole move looks very unfortunate and unnecessary.

There are many unanswered questions in this whole controversy like why Gen V K Singh was silent for so long? Why he took earlier promotions on the ground of seniority? When he accepted earlier verdicts and promotions then why he is making it a big issue. This issue clearly highlight selfish motivates and wrong intensions. Fight between Army Chief of India and Indian Government is not a good sign for country and it will present a wrong image. Now, this case is with Supreme Court of India and hopefully, we will get all answers related to this matter in next few days.
