Lt Gen Retd P N Hoon in citibank fraud case. .... Ashok Mehta sermonising on the idiot box about ethics and morality in ... Many people in the Army are fully aware that Mehta was court martialled and dismissed from service... remember Adarsh, Tatra and Sukhna scamsters... law is yet to catch up with them...
Comment: Should Retired Generals be privy to corruption, support money launderers and arms lobbyists? ESM Governing Body should confine themselves to Veteran welfare measures and not become idiot box commentators... Retired armchair Generals seldom delve on real time welfare issues of the Veterans but spend their lifetime spinning money through all conceivable means... all their analysis will come to a nought when China annexes our territory and their eyeballs will roll to another target...
