Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann:
Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that senior military officers like Air Chief Marshal B.S. Dhanoa should not comment on the import and the expense of weapons as this is the domain of Hindu politicians and beureacrats. The Hindu’s are masters of bargaining for their country and their deep pockets.
Previously Air Chief Marshal Tyagi, IB Chief and another IPS officer are caught up in the helicopter deal. But very few people know that it was Mr Brajesh Mishra of the Vajpayee regime who set the ball rolling in this corrupt deal. Generals at the top must remain in their field of military professionalism. Buying and selling is the profession of the Hindu politician and bureaucrats who are good “munims”.
Even Maharaja Ranjit Singh entrusted his finance ministry to his Hindu minister, who did very well in financing the consistent military drives, operations and campaigns of the Lahore Darbar.
ਇਥੇ ਇਹ ਮੁਹਾਵਰਾ ਵੀ ਢੁਕਦਾ ਹੈ,
“ਸੱਦੀ ਨਾ ਬੁਲਾਈ, ਮੈਂ ਲਾੜੇ ਦੀ ਤਾਈ”।
