Rs.14 Crore Bribe offered to V K Singh Army Chief CBI enquiry ordered

Rs.14 Crore Bribe offered to V K Singh Army Chief CBI enquiry ordered

Army chief General VK Singh in an interview to the national daily The Hindu told that he was offered a bribe of Rs 14 crore by an equipment lobbyist for clearing the purchase of 600 substandard vehicles.



General Singh also said that 7,000 of those of which were already in use in the Army had been sold over the years at exorbitant prices.

In interview honest Army Chief said that "One of these men had the gumption to walk up to me and tell me that if I cleared the tranche, he would give me Rs 14 crore. He was offering a bribe to me, to the Army Chief. He told me that people had taken money before me and they will take money after me."
He also said that there was no proper facility where they could be serviced and maintained and yet they continued to be sold to the Army

Further he said that the defense minister AK Antony was apprised of the matter.

Meaning of Apprised –
Apprise - make aware of or notice or information etc.

After this claim by Army chief defense minister Antony ordered a CBI inquiry into this bribe offering case.

Now the questions remaining are Chief said that Defense Minister knew about this
Why no action was taken until the interview

Why chief has not made the name of man who approached him?

Media reported that a retired Army officer offered him the money.

NDTV reported that alleged bribe was offered by Tejinder Singh, who retired as a Lieutenant General and had served as a chief of the Defense Intelligence Agency. He has also been allotted a flat in the Adarsh Society famed as a corruption Adarsh Society.

The army chief was allegedly asked to sanction the army's purchase of a new consignment of vehicles from Tatra Vetra.

About this also I do not know the name of the company or vehicle but media has reported this.

I do not know the name who offered the bribe.

What is the name of the vehicle and how much loss Indian citizens suffered?

Let’s hope CBI will find it out and it will come into public domain or may become a private affair on the name of national interest and we Indian citizens will never know the real truth.

Jai Bharat, no doubt.
It is a testing time for all of us. A strong centre at this critical juncture would have helped all of us. But not to be.
All of us are small small pawns in a giant chessboard called India. It is amazing that many like this chess game because it suits their spirit.
