    OMJC and OROP.
    Central government whether BJP or Congress or any other Khichdi government is not concerned about Army except to politicise the issue.
    MOD fights case against own Army.If they are efficient why a soldier should go to court.
    Defence Ministry is most compacent.IAS compare themselves with Army.Why they compare the job profile hazards of that life and plight of family of martyrs .
    Defence Minister for that matter any Central minister should be from that feild.e.g CA are person related to finance must be Finance minister,IFS must be Foreign minister, Defence Force Retd officer be Defence minister.
    All services whether IAS,IFS,Police, Paramilitary or any other services ,Politiciansmust by force must serve in army for 5yrs ,then only they will knowhiw Army works and under what conditions.
