Political Storm in Army Over Chief Selection Selects Bipin Rawat as Next Army Chief

New Delhi:  Vice Chief of Army Staff Lieutenant-General Bipin Rawat's selection as the next army chief, superceding two senior officers, has triggered a political storm. After former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi overlooked General SK Sinha to make General AS Vaidya the army chief in 1983, this is the second time in 33 years when the government hasn't followed the tradition of choosing the senior-most general for the top post. The defence ministry is yet to comment on the matter. Government sources say Lt Gen Rawat is best suited among the generals to counter the challenges the country currently faces.

While the Congress and the Left Front had questioned the selection, the BJP has slammed what it calls the "politicising" of a key army appointment.
