Air Chief Marshal a gutsy Officer who says the Emperor wears no clothes. Simranjit Singh Mann, Member of Parliament.

The Tribune dated 09th October 2023.

Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that at last the soldier in Air Chief Marshal VR Chaudhari has spoken.

Our party has at various forums stated that the armed forces are in poor shape and not worthy of fighting a two front war, besides Internal unrest created by the Hindutva forces of various factions and Sena’s animosity towards the Minorities, Schedule Castes and Tribals.

The Air Force lacks a kick as it has no stealth jet fighters. The cannibalised Tejas is unfit to meet the challenge of Su-35, Su-57, J-20 and others with Communist China and Islamic Pakistan.

The state killings of Sikhs abroad has further weekend the Hindu Indian state and it is time it made amends by putting the National Security Advisor, the Chief’s of R&AW(), I.B, Military Intelligence the special group responsible to Parliament and the secret service funds of these agencies be audited so that they don’t become a state within a state.

The army and the forces which have started the requirement of Agniveer is a bit of nonsense as no solider can become a professional in four years of service.

The army lacks amphibious tanks and amphibious infantry vehicles.

This is not the age of making aircraft carriers as they will be sitting ducks from enemy fire of various types. Today we must have submarines, corvettes and frigates.

The Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) is deeply shocked at the standard of officers in command of the forces. They have no vision and no guts to speak out but Air Chief Marshal Chaudhari has become an example to whom his profession is dear than receiving sinecures.

Lastly now we have no Sikh Commanders in the Three Services and if the past record is to be seen, it is the Sikh Generals since 1947 who have defended and created the new state of Bangladesh. But all were shabbily treated. These Sikh Generals were Major Gen. Harbaksh Singh, Gen. Jagjit Singh Arora, Gen. Shabeg Singh and others.
