Comment: Sukhna, Adarsh, AWHO and Encroachment/ hijacking of Military Lands and assets by Criminals are a testimony to the growing menace. The ESM organisations need to take up the cudgels to preserve Military Lands vital for National Security. A sample case is the Gymkhana Club which comprises acres of Military Land in Chennai has been hijacked by vested interests- The rental paid is peanuts- The MOD has been silenced by bribes. Hundreds of similar cases in connivance with DEO go undetected throughout length and breadth of the Nation.
