VK Singh mess: CPI(M) demands credible probe
The demand of enquiry by the CPI(M) gains significance in the view that the internal inquiry by the army under Lt General Vinod Bhatia, DG, Military Operation has been questioned by many. The statement of CPI(M) also suggest that the Left party does not approve of any unofficial investigation into a matter relating to the security of the democratic institutions in India.

Political ripples created by Bhatia report on the functioning of the Technical Support Division of the Military Intelligence under former Army Chief General VK Singh and subsequent response by the latter refuse to die down. After BJP and Congress-NC alliance locked horns over the VK Singh affair, the Left has also jumped into the debate seeking a credible probe into the entire episode.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, the polit bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) said, “The reports that a unit of military intelligence has financed certain ministers in Jammu & Kashmir have serious implications for the democratic political process.  The Central government should institute a credible enquiry into the matter.”

The demand of enquiry by the CPI(M) gains significance in the view that the internal inquiry by the army under Lt General Vinod Bhatia, DG, Military Operation has been questioned by many. The statement of CPI(M) also suggest that the Left party does not approve of any unofficial inquiry into a matter relating to the security of the democratic institutions in India. The statement clearly reflects that the party does not consider the Bhatia report, subsequently leaked to media, as credible.

Furthermore, the CPI(M) has sought probing the roles of the ministers in the Omar Abdullah cabinet after General VK Singh went public with the statement saying that several ministers of Jammu & Kashmir were given money on various occasions to carry out tasks in the interest of national security. Coming out of the Left party is another signal that the issue of washing dirty linen by both the government and a former army chief is not going to fizzle out soon and that there's more than what meets the eye.
