created a flutter is a fact General Bipin Rawat Lieutenant-General Praveen Bakshi and Lieutenant-General PM Hariz have all behaved maturely and handled the situation in an appropriate manner And just as you got the feeling that things were settling down and that all three officers had resumed work as usual the news of a video-conference by Bakshi to his command on 31 December 2016 dominated the visual media on 12 January This incident was exacerbated by the video clips that a member of the Border Security Force (BSF) and a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) apiece put out on social media commenting on the standard of food and living conditions Even their families were dragged before the TV cameras On 13 and 14 January there were acrimonious debates on the buddy system in the army All these indicate how life has become transparent in the present times Needless to say the complaints need to be looked into and resolved If any omission or commission towards wrongdoing by anybody is detected then they need to be dealt with strictly The men’s needs are in the lower part of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and therefore their physical comfort should be catered for without any compromise on quality The buddy system in the army comes up for discussion periodically It is a sacred relationship between an officer and his buddy Many commentators who have not experienced this relationship have expressed adverse opinions about it File image of General Bipin Rawat PTI While no one disputes the correct employment of the buddy asking for the abolition of the system emanates from inexperience of matters related to war and the military ethos Having a strength of approximately 11 million 3 20000 and 3 08000 personnel respectively the army BSF and CRPF are huge organisations It will be difficult to satisfy everybody Moreover collective living under one roof that is necessitated by the working conditions of the men and women in these organisations throw up a different set of problems That is why there is a strict command and control hierarchy that is in place in these organisations It is their onerous duty to look after their men and women Army BSF and CRPF personnel are many-a-time deployed in small posts over vast areas This operational requirement makes command and control and administration of troops difficult That only asks for extra efforts to be put in to administer the rank and file of all these forces One is sure that chain of command in all the three organisations will look into the complaints of their personnel and take appropriate remedial measures We all know even in small organisations there are likely to be some disgruntled elements There are systems in place that look into these cases and take appropriate remedial measures Problems arise when the issues get publicised even before the organisation can enquire into these aberrations and take remedial actions The recourse to social media by the men from the BSF CRPF and army is an indication of sub optimal officer-soldier relationships in these units To extrapolate these incidents as indicative of a malaise throughout the organisation is fraught with danger Such an opinion should only be formed after a thorough study is carried out and if and only if the results of such a study support it Another issue that these units should look into is the "unit tarteeb"(System in an Unit) The unit tarteeb is the bed rock of good man-management and administration in a unit These incidents are also an indication that these organisations should get back to basics This article began with the issue of the COAS’ selection The COAS at the moment is in charge of issues related to operational preparedness and modernisation of the Indian Army development of military logistics infrastructure pay and allowances of his officers and soldiers (incidentally the armed forces are the only organisation where 7th Pay Commission Recommendations have not been implemented so far due to anomalies that have been projected to the government; paramilitary and Central Police Forces have already got their benefits) One Rank One Pension procurement of equipment enormous amount of litigation welfare of ex-servicemen veer naris and widows et al He is the chief of our army — an army that faces two adversarial active borders It is therefore imperative that we allow him to concentrate on his job rather than attending to less important issues Similarly Bakshi who is commanding the Eastern Command is looking after the defence of our territory bordering China Nepal Bhutan Myanmar and Bangladesh In addition he is also combating insurgency in Assam Arunachal Pradesh Nagaland Manipur and Meghalaya He has an onerous task to fulfil Hariz is looking after our border with Pakistan and commands one of the largest geographical areas in our country All three of them are constantly on the move to oversee the training operational preparedness and welfare of the troops that they command These army commanders command lakhs of troops The life of all the three officers is nothing to be envied Under these circumstances it will be unfair to drag these organisations and the officers into controversies Our country’s future lies in the hands of these organisations and as citizens we all have the onerous task of making these organisations strong The first thing we need to do is to stop showing these very organisations that protect the people of this country in a negative light By all means if any issues come up they need to be highlighted and proper remedial measures be taken But flogging issues beyond a point is not warranted There are grievance mechanisms in every force and they need to be allowed to function effectively The second thing that needs to be done is to verify the facts fully before highlighting them In fact the Ministry of Home Affairs has put out a report that there is no truth in the reports by the BSFjawan This will ensure that these organisations concentrate on their task rather than running to defend themselves often unnecessarily Thirdly the organisations themselves need to be less sensitive to criticism They should look into the issues highlighted and investigate them impartially and solve the issues They also should get back to the basics as mentioned above The army paramilitary and CPFs in this country are working overtime to ensure a peaceful and secure living for its citizens They have enough problems to resolve in their own domains The problems can be on both operational and administrative issues The need of the hour is to "let them be" The author is a retired lieutenant-general of the Indian Army By: PTI | Kolkata | Published: October 13 2017 2:37 am In both their wins Gomes has started off the bench (Source: AP) Related News They have emerged as the front-runners to lift the FIFA U-17 World Cup with two convincing wins and England’s star player Angel Gomes likened their style of play to none other than EPL giants Manchester United “There are a few similarities as to how (Manchester) United play and England play” Gomes said here England have already sealed a last-16 berth with a match to spare following two successive wins against Chile and Mexico “But when I’m here we focus on our own identity and style and try to stick to that” The 17-year-old is one of the most highly-rated youth prospects at Old Trafford and he showed it with a jaw-dropping free-kick conversion to seal a 4-0 rout of Chile Cousin of former United winger Luis Nani Gomes had replaced Wayne Rooney in a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace to become the youngest player for the Red Devils in the English Premier League last season In both their wins Gomes has started off the bench but he backed chief coach Steve Cooper’s decision “It’s up to the manager (to pick the team) and whatever he says I agree on because we trust the manager and we know he’ll make the right decision “I think I had a bit of an impact on the game and we coped well in tough conditions The supporters are loud and they’ve been very good to us” He further said their focus is now on Iraq as a third win or even a draw will be enough to top Group F and play the pre-quarterfinals “As a team we stuck to the game plan and we’re happy to get the three points and move onto the next game which is Iraq” English defender Tashan Oakley-Boothe hoped that they would continue their rampaging form and hailed the crowd support at the Salt Lake Stadium on both their match days “It was a good team performance today but our next target is just to win the next game which is Iraq “We just want the fans to keep going and cheering us on and hopefully we’ll be successful” England’s previous U-17 World Cup outing in Chile ended on a sour note as
