TRUTH VS HYPE - UTILISATION OF DSOI SERVICES

 
 
Date: 16 Feb 2016

 

IMPORTANT CLARIFICATION

 

A recent post of Facebook by a veteran has alleged that Army HQ has denied permission to an Ex-Serviceman organisation to hold meeting on OROP at the DSOI, Dhaula Kuan, New Delhi. Other veterans have made some very uncivil comments on the said Facebook post undermining the offices of the QMG and the COAS. Such incidents have occurred in the past also.

 

It must be clarified that the request for booking of venue at the DSOI for said meeting was denied by the Management Committee of the DSOI headed by its President in keeping with the byelaws and rules of the DSOI. Since the Management Committee is empowered to take such decisions, there was absolutely no involvement of Army HQ or the Offices of QMG or the COAS in the said matter.

 

Members of the Serving and Veteran communities are requested not to resort to circulating un-verified or un-truthful information or comment on them especially those which undermine the image and credibility of the Armed Forces or their leadership.
