We aren’t flawless!

When Congress leader Rahul Gandhi asked the reason for our soldiers being weaponless while patrolling, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar immediately replied that it was in accordance with an agreement between India and China that the soldiers will not be carrying any weapons during patrolling. The Army sources say that this was being practiced ever since the agreements of 1993, 1996 and 2005 were signed so that no accidental use of weapons make us subject to international mockery. Sources say that CDS Bipin Rawat had alerted the Army Chief on this. Many decisions by him as Army Chief were questioned with ‘One Rank, One Pension’ scheme being one amongst them. The Army sources say that the senior army officers have ignored intelligence inputs on many occasions. 2019 is a case in point, when there were reports of 600, which didn’t bother our senior army officers.
