Katawalspeak



KIRAN PANDAY
Just like the time of the monarchy, COAS Rookmangud Katawal is now framing his apothegms in the army headquarters. Whether it is his yearning to be the 'new king' or his hunger to be in news via controversies, Katawal needs to understand that no wall in a republic nation shall put up his quotes. Katawal's position has been a political issue lately, more so because of the opposing political parties than the General himself. However, the Maoists' constant accusations and Katawal's comments on politics has put the peace process in jeopardy. And equally misleading is the fact that the government is not doing anything to put a stop to this row. The question is who shapes the army's ideology: the democratic government or the army chief?
