Karan Thapar: Why has the government's decision on One Rank One Pay left retired soldiers and officers dissatisfied? at 8 PM on #CNNIBN
The alienation between the Army and the bureaucrats is an issue that is making difficult for policies like ‘one rank one pension’ to be implemented, former Chief of Army Staff Gen VP Malik said.
“I am very worried about the alienation that is taking place between the people in uniform and those in the government,” Malik said to Karan Thapar on CNN-IBN.
“There is a very strong feeling that the political leadership is not consulting the heads of services adequately on strategic issues, and not at all when it comes to financial compensation, terms and condition of service, welfare and morale,” he added.
General Malik also said that the relationship between the government and the Army “in the last few years it has gone bad to worse.”
When asked if the political management of the defense services have deteriorated under the UPA 2, Malik said, “Yes, I can say that because UPA 2 has been ruling for last few years.”
