Possibilities are growing that Eastern Command chief Lt. Gen Praveen Bakshi , who has been superseded with the appointment of Gen Bipin Rawat as new army chief , will put in his papers if his honour is not restored as Chief of Defence Staff ( CDS).
The post of CDS is yet to be created.
Gen. Bakshi met Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar and is understood to have voiced his reservations in working under his junior Gen. Bipin Rawat who has been elevated to the post of the Chief of army staff. He has also expressed his desire to resign if he is not restored with a four-star general post. Similar views have been aired by him to the outgoing army chief Gen. Dalbir Singh Suhag.
The Modi government appointed Gen. Rawat as the next army chief superseding Gen Bakshi, the senior most and the next in the line for promotion to army chief and Sothern Command chief Lt. Gen P M Hazir
The sources indicated that the government is unclear about the fate of Gen. Bakshi and Gen Hazir, and since Gen. Bakshi is reported to have voiced reservation regarding serving under Gen. Rawat . In this situation Gen. Bakshi may put in his papers in the next few days.
