The last order for 700 Tatra trucks was cleared in 2009-2010. While Gen Singh said the vehicles were substandard, the defence ministry on Monday said there were no issues about quality.
“We have not received any complaints from the armed forces on quality. However, there are issues of after-sales service,” Rashmi Verma, joint secretary (land systems) said.

According to General Singh, it was because he had cracked down on corruption that he was targeted on his date of birth: “But things are fast unravelling and you will soon see the hand behind the drama. You will soon see who the sutradhar of the play is.”
India needs disciplined generals like V. K. Singh as valued uncorrupt politicians. Good work general. Join Anna Hazare group. God Bless India and You.

Is anyone surprised? The final suthradhar is this Government, which is notorious in mudsligning any person who exposes the true nature of its governance or the final beneficiaries of under the table deals. General V.K. Singh we Indians are with you. Hope you continue your fight after retirement, as part of the Lokpal.

The Army Chief is perfectly right when he says 'The army should not fight its own people.' There is police to deal with the people. The army has an image of respect as people fighting or dying for the country. The army is specifically meant to deal with enemy country. Naxals are not enemies of the country. They are the aggrieved people of the country. The result of corrupt politicians. It is a social problem.

Till now it seemed that army was free from the grasp of political influence and dirty games, but it seem from Army chief that politician has a simple game plan that is "whether you are with us or get ready to get tainted". The roots of corruption has reached a depth that a chief is offered bribe.if these cases go unnoticed soon we will see the organisation been eaten by termites of corruption.Let the truth prevails.

Scams that rocked defence ministry since 2007: click here
The real face of MOD
The truth is that the Military is palmed off substandard equipment bought at exorbitant rates from dubious dealers who have lobbyists working backwards with bribes to clench the deal. The Politicians and Bureaucrats are the real culprits who do not get caught. The CBI investigations under MHA will be a farce and will be used as a cover up akin to a smoke screen to shield the corrupt including the previous Chief's who are guilty of making big bucks. The Adarsh Scam has helped in exposing few of the culprits. Thanks to the Media for taking up cudgels against the powerful, mighty rich and the corrupt. The bribe trail is difficult to trace or track (like 2G Spectrum Scam) because the handlers are Secret Swiss Bankers.
