Condemning General Bipin Rawat's unconstitutional outburst

by , 26 Dec 2019

Communist Party of India (Marxist) has unequivocally condemned the statement made by the Army Chief, Gen. Bipin Rawat. The General has directly indulged in condemning the student protestors who have been opposing the Citizenship Amendment Act and the move towards creating the National Register for Citizens across the country. 

Army Chief's statement underlines as to how the situation has degenerated under the Modi government where the highest officer in uniform can so brazenly breach the limits of his institutional role.  It is, therefore, necessary to raise the question as to whether we are going the Pakistan way of politicizing the military.  Such obnoxious interference in matters of
democratic struggles from top ranking military professionals is unheard of in the history of independent India. 

The Polit Bureau urges that the General apologises to the nation for his indiscretion which has extremely adverse ramifications for the Constitutional arrangement in the country.  We also demand that the government takes note of such a breach and censures the General.

We also expect all patriots in the country, who hold the Constitution of India in the highest esteem, raise their collective voice of protest over this brazen politicisation of the army's role.
