Some facts on #Agnipath. A regular (permanent) lowest order soldier recruit in #IndianArmedForces earn a total of appoximately Rs 14 lakh in 4 years. #Agniveer will earn Rs 15.6 lakh plus Rs 11.5 lakh parting money, total Rs 27.1 lakh 1/4
#Agnipath is short service scheme for soldiers. For officers similar 5-year scheme exists since 1960's. Roughly 25% of #Indianarmedforces officers are on short service. This ceiling may be raised too. 2/4
Why #Bihar is most critical of #Agnipath? Bihar dies for govt service. This is linked to dowry (price) in marriage market. To capitalise social psyche, there is a parallel universe of 'coaching centres' who are blamed for running employment rackets 3/4

1/ Former #Brahmos chief A #SivathanuPillai writes in his book ‘The Path Unexplored’ that army commanders tried their best to sabotage the Brahmos cruise missile - India's most successful weapon. (He doesn't name them but it's the Chandigarh Lobby)
2/Pillai reveals that these senior military commanders wanted to scuttle the #BrahMos project by declaring its performance unsatisfactory. Their plan was to continue India’s dependency on imports, which would result in more kickbacks for middlemen.
3/The #Chandigarh Gang is not exclusively based in Chandigarh, but is only centered there. Its elements exist in different parts of the country. Army chief #GeneralVKSingh broke the back of the Chandigarh Gang, but it continues to survive.

The corrupt leaders of #Kashmir are now “concerned” for its development:
Recently, Farooq Abdullah remarked that “economic development in J&K can’t be achieved unless Aug 5 decisions are reversed”.
Well Abdullahs were in power for more than 5 decades, but what did we get?
The way #FarooqAbdullah criticises the Govt, one would have thought that he must have been an ace administrator. Well we all know that he presided over a Govt which will go down in the #history as one of the most inefficient and #corrupt Govt.
Who was Sheikh Abdullah? A teacher from Soura. What did Omar Abdullah inherit from his grandfather?
Today Abdullah family owns a house in London, a house in southern France, a house in New Delhi, and a house in Gurgaon, besides the houses at Gupkar road.

Worth using google translate to watch the #propagandalive as @Erkanomia is in #Moscow to cover the #Kremlin #Military parade #HappeningNow. Some ++good #OSINT & #IMINT in his #live & candid coverage. 😎
For example, while the #Moscow #Elite typically use a black #SUV with license plate ending in 88 (sometimes 888 for family of senior officials & oligarchs who must #Drive themselves), here we see the first of the latest #cars with new #licenseplatedata.

Close-up I made from the #Finland team's #photography showing @mod_russia's Army #celebrity #swag bags for the Diamond Jubilee #celebration of the #Soviet #WWII win... ignoring 1939-1941 🙄

The Hon Minister Mr Singh, #IndianArmedForces, is a special guest at #VictoryDayParade.
