The Right Stand: Defining 'Politicisation of The Forces'

Apr 13, 2019 08:22 AM IST India India

Over 150 veterans are up in arms over politicisation of the armed forces during the political season. In a loaded letter to the President, the veterans appealed to ensure that the secular and apolitical character of the armed forces is preserved and to urgently direct netas to stop using the armed forces for politics. However, 3 retired officers whose names featured in the letter deny giving any consent. The Centre too termed it as a fake letter by vested groups. Tonight on The Right Stand, Anand Narasimhan asks, has the armed forces = apolitical code been violated?
