Army Chief tells Anna movement showing power of democracy

Army Chief General V K Singh said that the anti-corruption movement in India shows the “power of democracy, power of people.”

He said, “Interesting in terms of how we are witnessing the power of democracy, the power of the people. Interesting in terms of how we are seeing our leadership cope up with these things’.”

“A lot of things are happening, from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and from Gujarat to the most north-eastern part. There is a certain amount of unrest in the country, for various reasons–some sponsored, some genuine (and) some which started with genuine thing and then got into something else.”

“The theme is only one–how do we take the nation forward from the morass that we are in…. It is not who is leading the movement but it is why it has come to this stage.”

“If the youth are channelised, if they are given the type of value system, I think we can get out of this great ‘daldal’ (morass) that we are in.”

He was speaking to the members of the entertainment industry in suburban Juhu last night and the function was organized by former MP Santosh Bhartiya.
