New Delhi: Making harsh comments on suspicious activities of China and Pakistan along the borders, Army chief General V K Singh said there should not be any compromise in dealing with such issues.

On Sunday, Army chief attended the rally of the Indian Ex-Services League Punjab, Chandigarh at Baddowal Stadium based on Ludhiyana-Firozpur highway.

Talking on the controversies of army and security, he also made indirect comments on the media as well. He said that everyone can have different perceptions and it is their discretion that how and which context of the story is to be presented.

While responding to Tatra scam, he reasoned patiently that suggestion of calling all companies for trial was not wrong. The letter written to the Prime Minister was extremely confidential but it was on the interest of national security.

He was very patient in addressing the concerns of army men in the rally and said the Defence Minister and the Central Government are positive in solving their issues.

However, the Defence Ministry has agreed to fix 39 out of 46 issues which require Rs 3,000 crore.  Army chief has cleared that meeting the demand of one pension-one rank requires Rs 1,300 crore. The Defence Minister has agreed on this added VK Singh.

While assuring on the competency of Indian army, he said that senior officials are working on several projects in the interest of military personnel. Under the series of health centers for ex-army men, 20 units will be opened in Punjab.

A hostel is being set up for the children of military personnel taking army coaching in Kota. However, renovation of old age home of Panchkula is in progress to give proper shelter to homeless ex-army men.
