forcesafter the recent media-battering it has receivedwas as commendable as it was unexpected Sadlythe damage done to a grand edificeand the wound inflicted on the psycheself-esteem and esprit de corps of a million-and-a-half young officerssoldierssailors and airmen go deep and may not mend soon Equally mortifying to the nation was yet another reminderthrough a leaked letterthat the emperor has no clothes; this in the presence of the Chinese leadership The ability to introspect is not a national strengthbut we must face the reality that the continuing dramaas it unfoldsreveals merely the symptoms of a cancer whose roots are embedded in our polity and which has entered the national security system In a democracy such as oursthe answers will comenot from shrill TV anchors haranguing emotional and intemperate veteransbut from the political leadership As we seek a panacealet us examine some facets of this hydra-headed disease A major contributory factor has been political detachment from and indifference towards matters relating to national securitybecause this is not an issue that can win or lose votes for the politician Such is the intensity of political activity in the country thateven with the best intentionsit leaves the Raksha Mantri (RM) inadequate time for defence and strategic affairs The writer has often sat across the ministers table to brief him on an important issueonly to be interrupted by the incessant ringing of his four mobiles and three phones in rapid succession These wereno doubturgent calls relating to the business of Parliamentparty or constituencybut once the allotted time was upone had no choice but to leave the RMs officeknowing that the defence secretary would be summoned later to fill in the blanks The ministry of defence (MoD) is uniquein that it demands of the minister not just a comprehension of complex security issues and expeditious decision-makingbut also frequent interaction with the military hierarchy A degree of familiarity with the senior military leadership coupled with some self-assertion would enable the minister not only to seek their expertise and advicebut also to provide guidance and exercise political supervision with a friendly but firm hand Unfortunatelysuch a level of comfort has rarely prevailed in South Block The armed forces leadership and the countrys political establishment are simply ill at ease with each otherand a yawning chasm has developed between them This gap is bridged by the bureaucratbut as we can seethings tend to drift The politician should haveby nowrealised that he is not dealing with British blimps or Prussian herrenvolkbut proletarian armed forces The Indian officer corps is drawn increasingly from the middle and lower strata of the Indian middle classwhose first instinct is to defer to civil political authority Had the RM and the chiefs established an equation of mutual respect and confidencethe current crisis could have been resolved behind the closed doors of his office It is now obvious that dialogue in South Block has been taking place first on files and then via the media The next important factor is the almost total reliance that the RM hasin the current systemon the MoD bureaucracy for adviceroutine decision-makingproblem resolution and crisis management While the comfort level in this relationship may be higherthe delegation of civilian control to the bureaucracywhile excluding the armed forces from these functionsamounts to dereliction of responsibility by the political establishment While many accusations against the bureaucracyof obduracystonewalling and even malicemay be overstatedone thing that they have certainly achieved with great deliberation is to stubbornly resist all attempts at change The writer is currently serving on a task force on national security reform As the sole relict of a similar task force constituted by the NDA government in 1999I have an eerie sense of déjà vu as13 years down the lineI hearwith a sinking feelingthe same logic and arguments being used to stall yet another attempt at reforms The estrangement between the service headquarters and MoD has not just created an atmosphere of bitterness and mutual recriminationbut also led to systemic dysfunctionalities Two examples from the recent controversy are enough to demonstrate the level of stasis Firstin the midst of all the ranting about corruption surrounding the supply of Tatra trucksno one has thought of asking the MoD whyafter importing thousands of these trucks over 40 yearsour vast defence-industrial complex has not been able to produce an indigenous version The ammunition shortages revealed by the army chiefs letter refer to the reserves which the service is supposed to maintain in order to fight a war of 30-45 days duration Since wars do not always give notice of their approachhow is it that the RMdefence secretary and chief did nothing about these shortages all these years A critical factorand the root of much of the corruption we see all aroundis the fact that political partiesacross the boardsee the arms import business as a veritable golden goose for election funding This may explain the lackadaisical pursuit of indigenisation as well as corrupt individuals We have witnessedsince the 1980svirtually every single major defence contract getting embroiled in allegations of corruption and kickbacksoften made by commercial rivals The net result of these controversies is that the modernisation plans of the armed forces have slowed down drasticallyand the nations capability to produce weapons has stagnated Dare we hope for a bold political consensus that would declare defence purchases holy cows and off-limits for exploitation The final factor that needs to be addressed is the steep and calamitous decline in the ethical standards of the armed forces There is obviously a deep subliminal urgeamong officersto keep up with the Joneses in other sections of Indias rapidly prospering society This has led some of us in the senior hierarchy of the armed forces to adopt ostentatious customs and lifestyles; either by misusing official fundsor by adopting other unethical means Such is the change in mores thattill it became an overnight scam, Set up in 2013, who returned to Tripura after several years in Kolkata.
