Military should be kept out of politics: Army Chief

Army Chief Bipin Rawat stressed on the need to prevent the politicization of the military and reiterated that defence forces work best when they operate in a secular environment away from politics. "We have a vibrant democracy, where the military should stay far away from the polity".

Rawat was speaking at an event organised by the United Service Institution.

The Army must be kept out of politics and the politicisation of the armed forces is not good.

Asked later what his statement meant, the Army chief said it was a clear statement and refused to elaborate any further.

According to Rawat, the military should be kept away from politics for a vibrant democracy.

"For our martyrs, children are entitled (to) free education".

Former Bills safety Aaron Williams expressed similar sentiments on Twitter, saying Buffalo players showed "no clout". The fact that White ended up in concussion protocol was not a factor, according to Vincent.

"The Navy chief said in his letter that, ".this small gesture would assure the families of our courageous women and men that the nation cares for them and their sacrifices are truly appreciated by the government", the Navy chief said in his letter. "What has happened is possibly because of some misunderstanding- they have now capped it at Rs 10,000 because somebody must have calculated as to how much a person spends per month on child education,".

He said Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has promised to resolve the issue of a cap of Rs 10,000 on educational expenses paid to the children of defence forces martyrs. Therefore there is some process that has taken place.

"In our case, we have written to the government".

While the armed force is largely seen as an apolitical organisation, former Army Chief Gen V K Singh dragged the UPA government to court; joined a political party (BJP) post-retirement, contested and won a Lok Sabha seat to become a minister in the NDA government.

Admitting that while the objective of the media is to come out with the truth, to highlight the truth and to keep the citizenry informed, the chief said, "At times there may be a requirement to spread out some disinformation, spread out some half-truths Surprise and deception require lot of disinformation This is one area where I think the military needs to move forward".
